During middle childhood - the period between ages 6 and 12 - children reach many critical milestones. In fact, teacher and caregiver responses during this time of significant change can dramatically affect a child's physical, cognitive, social, and emotional growth, both immediately and in the future. At this stage, children grow physically, gain body awareness, and form lifelong habits that affect their health and well-being. At the same time, their minds expand in knowledge and understanding, as thinking processes become more logical and organized. The way they view themselves, and the manner in which they interact with family and friends, evolves as children develop self-concepts and self-esteem.

This program provides an informative, clear and compelling examination of the middle-childhood stage of development and a detailed overview of a child's growth and maturity into an adolescent. Viewers learn pertinent vocabulary, statistics, and classroom strategies, and hear experienced classroom teachers offer insights and observations about children in this stage of development.
