Jennifer O'Donnell is a former writer for Verywell Family covering tween parenting. She has covered parenting and child rearing for more than 8 years as an online writer. She digs camping, family movie nights, and yoga.
She has been an active volunteer with a children's service organization since 2001, working primarily with tweens and teens. On parenting tweens she says, "There's so much to enjoy and a lot to worry about. Find a balance and choose your battles carefully."
O'Donnell holds a BA in English and has received training in numerous specific areas regarding children and tweens. She is the mother of two children.
The tween years are full of exciting changes for both parents and their children. My goal is to provide you with the information and resources you need to make the most of these important developmental years.
