· Preparing Positively for Puberty – TK-8th Grade

We can prepare our children for puberty by teaching them what to expect as their bodies transition from childhood to adulthood. Learn how to break down "the big puberty talk" into tiny talks that are more comfortable for both caregivers and children. Participants will review resources such as books and web sites that can simplify the process of starting a tiny talk. Activities that can promote a positive and practical attitude toward this important life stage will be discussed.

Monday, October 26th from 6:30pm-8:00pm Online Course via Zoom

Class fee: $16/individual or $27/couple

Please note, scholarships are available to parents who may be in need. Parent can contact the Caring Connections Center for more information.
