How will you talk to your girl about puberty? Although the topic can make kids squirm, this workshop uses games and activities to foster fun, supportive discussion. We will review the biology of puberty – what physical and emotional changes she can expect and how to deal with them. We will also learn about feminine hygiene products. As kids enter adolescence, communication patterns may also change. We will work on maintaining open communication and shared values. Families will leave with the book The Care and Keeping of You. Felicia is the Los Alamos County Public Health Nurse. Jennifer has been helping teens and parents communicate for 16 years.
