Puberty: The Wonder Years Focuses on Two Main Goals:

  • Promoting appreciation and respect for the amazing changes experienced by self and others.
  • Equipping young people to postpone sexual intercourse.

Puberty: The Wonder Years 2015 includes curriculum for three consecutive years for fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students. The lessons are teacher friendly and youth engaging. Teachers are provided with full-color, animated slides to use with the lessons. Rubrics and other assessment tools are included.

Supplemental to its design for the school setting, it also includes activities that equip parents and other family members to engage with their children’s sex education. The activities encourage children to talk with their parents about their beliefs and family values.
