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.
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).
My mom says I'm still a kid but I am not I am a pre tween because I am a big kid and I'm 10 all my cousins say I'm still a kid but I am not I'm a pre tween so there u have it that is my argument.
It is so 11-12 bc that is when you are at that funny age. 10 is not a tween bc they r still children that don’t really have any interest in things like being older and growing up so fast but once your 11 ur not really a kid anymore and things mentally change for u. Like too old for toys too young for boys. . .
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.
Ages 9-12 in my opinion are tweens.The word tween is defined as a prepubescent child,and no matter what you say 9 is a tween because I am 9,have gone through puberty and started my period hecka long ago.Any prepubescent child or child going through puberty is a tween. Correct me if I am wrong.
Girls between the ages of 10-12 are considered tween or pre teens because girls usually start to notice body changes and hormonal changes at this state. Any younger I would say no but I think 10-12 is a suitable age to be considered a tween its just a couple of years before becoming a teenager at the age of 13.
Early childhood spans the age range of 0-9, when play is common among the little ones of this age range. At age 10,11 and 12, most are still prepubescent, but precocious members of this group may start to act like teenagers, influencing the rest of their peers. At least that’s what I observe
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.
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
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.
They're too young. It's not really close to being a teen like an actually tween is. For those people saying it's ages 8-12, NONONONO. 8 and 9 year olds?! Theyre great but I just feel mad when called "tweens." 11-12 year olds in my opinion. Also, 12 is pre-teen and a tween. And it doesn't matter about puberty, it's about age. It's tween, not "puberty, young child, and tween."
10 is not a tween because technicaly u have to be in middle school to be a tween and when your 10 your in gr.5 and gr.5 is not middle school. I used to think that because I wanted to seem older but I was not older, so u gotta respect that 10 is not a tween😐
They are children and will be children till they act like adults. I feel this need to be called tweens is an act of rebellion and should be taken into consideration hat they are not in charge and should still listen to there parents cause they will not get anywhere in life without there parents.
