Development Tracker -- Ninth Grade

Ninth Grade Your teenager's first year in high school will be a milestone for both of you: for her because it's her introduction to the wide world of "big kids" and all of its independence and decision-making; for you because she's finally made it past the hurdles of young adolescence, which probably made her more difficult to live with in the past two or three years. It's an exciting time, in part because she's probably more self-assured and calm than she's been for a while.
