Description

Sponsored by Seattle Children’s & Overlake

In this For Girls class, students will learn about:

  • What girls experience in puberty (breast development, growth, skin changes, menstruation, nutrition and sleep needs)
  • What boys experience in puberty
  • Social issues and decision making
  • Sexuality and sexual reproduction

This two-part class is recommended for girls 10 to 12 years old and a parent or trusted adult. The sessions focus on what the child and parent should expect as girls begin adolescence.

The goal is to create an opportunity for pre-teens and a parent or adult to receive information together in an engaging format and relaxed atmosphere. We emphasize family communication and resources to support young people on their journey through adolescence.

Every family will receive a copy of the book “Will Puberty Last My Whole Life?” written by the creators of Great Conversations – Julie Metzger RN, MN and Rob Lehman, MD. The book compliments the curriculum of the class and gives families an opportunity to continue the conversation on these important topics at home.
