Healthy Transitions (Girls)
February 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
This special class for girls ages 9-11* is designed to teach them about the transition to becoming a young woman. The class is intended to have a parent or other guardian attend, as there are “talk sessions” throughout the class when the girls are encouraged to discuss things with them.
The class covers physical, emotional, and social changes associated with puberty while promoting positive body image and healthy lifestyle choices. Our relaxed atmosphere helps minimize the embarrassment and awkwardness often associated with these topics and promotes honest conversations while fostering good communication between girls and their parents.
*We previously listed this class as appropriate for girls 9-12 but have found that some 12-year-olds are developmentally and intellectually beyond this presentation. If you have a 12-year-old who has not yet progressed too far through puberty or is a “young” 12, it may still be appropriate for her.
