Helping Your Child Through Early Adolescence

During the middle school years, your child will grow more quickly than at any other time since infancy. In the early adolescent years, children often want to “fit in” with their friends, whose opinions become more important.

As a parent, you may feel as though your increasingly independent children need you less, however research shows your role is still very important. Children this age need, as much now as ever, your support, guidance and unconditional love.

As in earlier years, children’s development at this stage follows predictable steps, but there is not an exact timetable. Children will develop as adolescents in their own unique time and in their own way. Below are a few examples of the traits commonly seen in children this age.

Ohio's Learning Standards

In June 2010, the State Board of Education adopted Ohio's New Learning Standards in English language arts and mathematics, the results of a multi-state effort. The board also has adopted Ohio's New Learning Standards in science, social studies, fine arts, world languages, and several other subjects. These more rigorous standards, geared to college and career readiness, will drive learning in Ohio classrooms beginning in 2014-2015.

The Ohio Department of Education has worked with teams of teachers across the state to develop a model curriculum of teaching strategies and resources aligned to Ohio's New Learning Standards. The State Board also has adopted model curriculum for most subjects. |
