As your tween begins to go through puberty, it is a good ideas to have some books for tweens that will give them more detailed information about love, sex and relationships. In this sexualised world that we live in, your tween is going to hear about sex whether you like it or not. So it is better that they hear about it from you and know that they can come to you with any questions that they may have.
Books come in handy as they provide more information than you could ever possibly share. Plus sometimes tweens are too shy to ask you a question directly, which means that having some books for tweens with age-appropriate information inside it, is a great resource for your tweens to turn to.
This list of books for tweens includes books on online safety, consent, puberty, sex, gender and much, much more!
