Middle Childhood is the period of life between ages 6 - 12 years when children attend school, are making friends outside the immediate family, master new physical and mental skills, and are becoming more and more individual. However, this opens the door for a new set of challenges, both for the child and the parent, and often can lead to stressful situations that can have a negative effect on the child's development.
This section contains titles dealing with the period of Middle Childhood from a development perspective. From introductory videos and books that describe the anticipated milestones for this age group, to activity-based titles, these resources can help parents, teachers, and childcare providers understand and respect this unique stage of middle childhood development, and how to best support the growth a child experiences during this time.
