Today’s tweens and young teens are difficult to navigate, but there is no comprehensive resource for tween parenting advice – especially for the unique challenges of urban parents. Even Babycenter’s weekly emails – which start at gestation – abruptly end at age 9!

Philly Tweens offers resources for Philadelphia area parents of tweens and young teens including expert advice; first-hand stories; school, camp, and activity directories; and updates on events that interest kids in this tricky age group.
