    Default preteens = preteenagers

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am on the right track by interpretation of the term in bold in the following excerpt from an entertainment news?

    The film shows nongraphic images of destruction, but there are also a few scenes in which people are hurt or killed, with some blood. There's a graphic surgical incision. A child grieves over a dead parent. The idea of wiping out humanity, even in a bad film, could scare preteens.

    preteens = preteenagers

    Regards,

    V.
