  • Yes it is

    Double digits. A tween is someone who is 10-12 years old. In other words a tween is an age with a one in front of it that doesn't end in teen. 10, 11, and 12 are all teens. 13-19 is teen though I guess 18 and 19 year olds are in a different category since they are adults.

  • Yes they are

    They are since there double digits. A tween is someone who is not a child or a teen and is double digits. 9 year old no even if your in 4th grade.4th grade 10 year olds yes because they can stay home alone,walk alone, ride the tallest rollercoaster and stay in car alone(legally).

  • This is my opinion(deal with it)

    I agree because I am(enter age here)and have been doing research about this type of thing and it is ages 10-12 But people in my family disagree even thought I have proof and I think it would be the appropriate age because 9 is too immature and 11 is a little too mature.

  • Im 10 and im considered a tween!

    My brother thinks otherwise, but I don't care! It says 8-12 are tweens. ULTIMITLY COMPLETELY WRONG!!!!!!!! 8 and 9 year olds are too dumbfounded and immature. So its unfair to call them tweens. A tween is a girl between 10-12. We call em tweens because they are in between. Too old for toys and too young for boys

  • Tweens vs. Teens

    10-12 is called tween because that age group is between teen ages. It does not end in teen, but is in double digits. I don"t know why people would say it isn't tween. I just proved it right here. Look it up you'll see i'm right.

  • Tweens vs. Teens

    Tweens are not exactly teens yet but are close. Like all of you guys said, it is ten and twelves, in the double digits but is not a teen. It is between 10-12 because it doesn't end with teen, like 13, but it is close to teens so we call it tweens.

  • Yes they are.

    10 - 12 year olds are tweets. It's when they start experiencing puberty. A tween is someone with an age that has 1 in the tens place and 0, 1, or 2 in the ones place. In other words, a tween is someone with a double - digit age, but it doesn't end it teen.

  • They should be.

    I have heard a lot of theories. I think 10-12 are the tween years, when they start experiencing puberty. I always think of the word tween coming from "between" and "teen" (obviously). It's when you are soon to become a teen and blah blah blah. But I think a tween might also be just 11-12.

  • Yes they are preadolescence

    Generally for girls they begin puberty at 10-11 so children at around that age is not a young child anymore they are almost on the stage to entered the teen age.I would also say that a 10 years old should actually already be considered as teens not a child as i see.

  • They are a child

    The term tween was previously used in J. R. R. Tolkien's 1954 novel The Lord of the Rings to refer to Hobbits in their twenties: "tweens as Hobbits called the irresponsible twenties between childhood and the coming of age at thirty-three."

    I have never heard of someone between the ages of 10 and 12 calling themselves a Tween ever, the way your suggesting it be used, must be some new american slang.

    Personally to me it just sounds stupid, then again it could be my age showing but to me, if a 10 - 12 year old turned up at school calling themselves a tween they would have been: either not taken seriously by the older students or openly mocked.

    But that said my school was for years 1 - 12 might be different in a primary school where there are no older students to mention how stupid the idea sounds.

    If your under Thirteen your a child in the eyes of the law in most places in the world. And even then your considered a minor until your eighteen.
