Welcome to the next stage of parenting - adolescence!

If you're reading this, I'm assuming that you have a child who is already going through puberty or soon will be!  

You'll find lots of information that will help you to prepare your child for puberty

This page is divided into sections to help you learn what to talk about, how to talk about it, when to talk about it, and why you need to talk about it.  Plus you'll find  resources like books, videos and useful websites listed as well.

You really can have honest conversations that guide your child through puberty, and strengthen your relationship without feeling embarrassed, awkward or nervous.

And I'm here to show you how!
