This is it - the last year before she's a teenager. 12 is a milestone year for a number of reasons, so help her make the most of it!

Teenage emotions are a wild ride, and you'll get a taste of them this year. Prepare for high highs and low lows - every victory is the best day ever, and any setback, no matter how minor, is worthy of a Shakespearean tragedy. (But she'll probably study Hamlet in high school, so this is just practice.) At 12, she'll still love the important adults in her life - she'll just want nothing to do with them!

While there will be moments this year when she acts like the young child you've always known, she's also growing into a young adult. This is a developmental stage where kids start finding leadership skills. Allow her to be involved in decision-making at home, and encourage her participation in community or school activities. She'll be happier and more confident when she feels she has a say in things.

But ultimately, she's just 12 - she's still figuring out who she is as a person. She's beginning to question the beliefs and values she grew up with. And there may be some big changes coming up. Is she a fast food fanatic who can't get enough of Big Macs? Try not to be too surprised if she becomes a loud and proud vegetarian overnight! Her beliefs may be different than yours, but she's carving out her own path in life. Encourage her to explore her interests - or as Shakespeare put it, "to thine own self be true". (Anything to help her get a headstart on Hamlet!)
