Beyond Puberty by Kerri Isham is a workbook that gives adolescents information about what happens after puberty ie love, sex and relationships.
By workbook, I mean that it is a book that you write in, with lots of activities to be completed. It also has lots of factual information that is very easy to understand.
This book is very comprehensive and covers a wide range of topics, including: support people (who you can talk to), your reproductive parts (inside and outside), what happens during puberty, how to look after your body (breasts and testicles), public and private, masturbation, gender, boundaries (consent and touch), knowing the boundaries of others (laws, sexual harassment), sexting, porn, different types of relationships, dating, sharing your body, and keeping safe.
Depending on the ability of your child, this book could be used independently or you could work through it together.
