What does tweenager mean?


A tweenager is a person who is between the age 9 and 12, just about to become a teenager. The term originates from "between" which is the age range where young persons are transitioning between child and teenager status.

The tweenager years are often looked back upon later in life as a person's "awkward years." They are going through or just about to go through puberty, which influences their appearance and social awareness.
