This month the PBS KIDS GO! site, It’s My Life launched a blog for tweens at http://pbskids.org/itsmylife/blog/ The blog is the latest addition to this safe and engaging destination that tackles tough issues that adolescents face in school, at home and in popular media. The blog’s age-appropriate articles cover everyday issues facing tweens,such as online bullying and going green, as well as discuss pop culture news and book reviews.

The site includes an Educators section with lesson plans that focus on bullies, drug abuse, eating disorders, being home alone, making money, smoking, sports and participation. Also be sure to check out the School channel that addresses topics on time management, transitioning to middle school and high school, cheating, surviving embarrassing moments, relating to a teacher, and dealing with test stress.
