Do you remember your parents talking to you about puberty? Many of us don’t because the “chat” barely existed. Times have changed, and so has the world our kids live in.
Today’s highly sexualised world, which is also championing much needed messages about respect, consent and healthy body image, demands that parents step more deliberately into this space. Parents have a big job on their hands!
To help you out, Michelle Mitchell has designed a new online program called “Talking About Puberty” for tweens aged 8 – 12. This program is here to make your job easier and promises to do all the “heavy lifting” for you.
I have watched this online program myself and wish I had this when I was younger! This program is so much more than discussions about body parts and body changes. It is loaded with the values that underpin healthy relationships and self-confidence.
Over the course of 13 videos (and accompanying discussion questions) your tween will hear from Michelle on topics like body parts, body changes, feelings about puberty, looking after a growing body, who to talk to about puberty, brain changes, managing moods, how to ask tricky questions, body safety and the opposite sex. The program mirrors and expand on the content in Michelle’s latest books “A Guy’s Guide to Puberty” and “A Girl’s Guide to Puberty”.
The program aims to:
👉 Provide straight up medically accurate information about the body children were born with.
👉 Focus on WELLBEING with additional content about brain changes, body image, protective behaviours and age-appropriate respect in relationships.
👉 Kick start important conversations and emphasise the role of trusted adults.
👉 Offer an approach which is inclusive and takes into consideration the range of needs and backgrounds of all families.
