When did my little toddler suddenly turn into a tween?

Sunrise, sunset, as the old song goes. Swiftly flow the years. One day, you’re looking at the toddler telling breathless stories across the table. The next, you’re looking at a tween, living in a world of her own. Our children grow up, and then they grow away. But as long as we can find new ways of listening and talking to them, they’ll always stay close to our hearts.  By Cath Jenkin
