How to use "Preteen" in context?

Preteens are a special group of children who are between the ages of 10 and 12. While there is no set definition of preteens, most experts agree that preteens are typically a little more independent and self-assured than their younger counterparts, but still feel a strong connection to their families and friends. Because preteens are growing into their own identities and developing their sense of self, they can be particularly susceptible to teenage angst and mood swings. However, with a positive outlook and plenty of support from their families and friends, preteens can thrive and enjoy their teenage years to the fullest.
