Hello, we have two daughters ages almost 9 and almost 12. The almost 12 is the one this question is about.
Past few months, especially these past couple months, she has become increasingly self-centered, critical of her sister, and not thoughtful of others. Maybe this is part of an oncoming phase? I am looking for any resources–books, online articles or videos–that can help me understand common emotional and social aspects of this age, as well as how for us to deal with them as parents.
If you can offer any advice, can you please send it this way!
I try to correct, guide, discipline when I see behaviors. I am not sure if I am doing enough or if I am micromanaging.
I would also love any resource on teaching virtues, hoping to help with this.
Thank you for aby advice you can give!
