What a lovely age that falls between elementary stage and teenager – tweens. The tween years are difficult as they tend to give you a brief glimpse of what’s to come in those ever challenging teenage years. Yet there’s still something pretty unique to the tween years that allows for this age to continue bringing fun to your life.
Tweens still continue to enjoy that parental bond. They still aim to please their parents as well as the world around them. This brings us to the subject of how tweens are making this world a better place to live in.
Tweens still have more of a desire to be kind. Making the world a better place starts with one act of kindness, isn’t that true? Tweens are making the world a better place thanks to parents who are raising well-rounded tweens who spread joy and kindness everywhere they go.
The average tween can work to stand up to bullying that happens at school, they can work to uplift their peers in powerful ways to experience more in life and friendships. Tweens are making the world a better place with their insightful, kind nature.
The continuous questions about the world around them, tweens have the habit of going backwards into the toddler years of constantly questioning “why.” And with that comes a huge way to make a difference in the world.
Tweens who are encouraged to ask the question of ‘why’ in their daily life will have a huge impact upon the world we reside in. They won’t be willing to simply take things for what they are. Those curious tweens ask for more, demand more and wish to be enlightened with the ‘why’ behind every bit and piece of the world that surrounds them.
Volunteering now opens up for the tween age, as most tweens are allowed to be independent for a short period of time. Many tweens are pushing to volunteer in their local towns. Here are some places where a tween can volunteer independently and make a difference in the world: town library, local food pantry, or an animal shelter.
Being a tween simply opens up many doors of opportunity to make the world a better place with one volunteer mission at a time.
There are many ways our tweens are making the world a better place. It comes down to supplying your tween with an uplifting, positive environment that encourages them to spread their wings and make a difference in the world they call home.
