A straight-forward common-sense book that will help you to prepare your child for puberty

Are you feeling unsure about the puberty talk?

Worried that you’ll say too much and overwhelm your child? Or too little and misinform them? 

Uncertain as to whether boys need to understand puberty differently than girls?

Hesitant about how to approach the topic without embarrassing them, or myself?

Terrified that they will show no interest, or cover their ears while walking away?

Anxious as you want your child to have a better experience of puberty than you had?

I love Cath Hakanson’s books. They are authentic, practical, well researched and empowering and this is no exception. I wish I’d had a book like this when my children were growing up.

As a sex educator who talks with thousands of parents and kids every year, I would recommend this book to parents, carers and educators, even if their child is not yet going through puberty. I have both Cath’s books Boy and Girl Puberty but she has amalgamated both of them together in one which is important in this day and age. Most of all I just love the 100+ questions at the end that will give you confidence as a caregiver and to know what to say when your child asks you – so that positive, empowering conversations can continue through life.
