First World Problems: Tween Version

It’s a hard life, I tell you, being a tween. I have twin 12-year-old girls, so I know about this. You’re either too young for all the things, or you’re too big for all the things, and it’s all completely unfair.

To make matters worse, tweens are pretty much ignored by the Internet. They’re the middle child of social media and memes: there’s tons of stuff about little kids, and tons of stuff about teens, but no one ever seems to think of the poor, forgotten preteen. It’s just so sad.

To remedy some of this under-representation, I’ve created First World Problems: Tween Version. Enjoy, and let me know if I’ve missed something completely unfair in your tween’s life!
