Let’s talk PUBERTY. Specifically, how to broach this tricky topic with our kids!
We know the onset of puberty is a critical time for parents to provide both the education and support that our kids need to feel confident in their growing and changing bodies. But what’s the right time to start teaching our kids the ins and outs of puberty, how much information is TOO much, and what’s the best way to have open informative conversations with our kids without making them crawl up into themselves and die of embarrassment?
To take us through this subject and help us with some tips to guiding our kids through what to expect in their coming-of-age years, we chat with Michelle Mitchell, author of A Girl’s Guide to Puberty and A Guy’s Guide to Puberty. These books, designed to be read by and shared with our kids are jam packed with need-to-know info on puberty, they’re accessible for kids at the same time as offering a great jumping off point for parents to start these important conversations. There’s a window of opportunity we have with tweens BEFORE the teenager roller door goes up (and they decide they already know everything)! Seize this opportunity, it’s now or never! It’s time to establish yourself as a trusted go-to person and reliable source of info about all things growing up and Michelle is going to help set us up for success!
