Our sessions together will educate and introduce young ladies to the process of physical, emotional, and social changes that occur during puberty. Puberty is a natural part of human development between ages 8 and 13.
Education typically covers various topics, including anatomy and physiology, menstruation, sexual and reproductive health, and emotional and social changes. The goal is to educate young ladies about the changes they will experience and their overall health and wellness options.
This class is designed for caregivers and their daughters to gain the education, communication skills, and resources to understand the upcoming changes better as she develops into a young lady.
Some key topics include:
- Menstruation: This includes information about the menstrual cycle, how to use menstrual products, and how to manage symptoms such as cramps and mood changes.
- Breast development: This covers the physical changes in the breasts during puberty and how to care for them properly.
- Body image: This includes discussions about healthy body image and self-esteem and how to promote a positive sense of self during this time of change.
- Sexual and reproductive health includes information about sexually transmitted infections, contraception, and healthy relationships.
- Emotional and social changes: This covers the emotional changes that can occur during puberty, how to cope with them, and how to navigate social relationships with peers and adults.
Effective education offers age-appropriate information and creates a safe and supportive environment for young girls to ask questions and share their experiences. This class includes all girls, regardless of their background or identity, and promotes respect for diversity and healthy relationships. Parents and caregivers also play an essential role in puberty education by providing ongoing support and guidance for their daughters as they navigate this transformation.
