PUBERTY 101

Doesn't your child deserve to know about the changes happening to them so that they can turn to you for support, guidance and information?

Are you looking for a better way to talk to your child puberty?

So that you can talk naturally about growing up. With LESS cringe and MORE confidence. All whilst  respecting your personal values.

And empower your child to make smart sexual decisions.

If that's you, then you're in the right place!

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!

Videos

Some parents like to use videos for sex education. So I am slowly collecting vidoes that are worth watching.

You'll find some fantastic videos that you can watch with your child. Or you can watch them to learn more about sex education yourself.

You'll also find a much bigger list of videos on my Sex Education Videos page.

Puberty Books

Books are an invaluable resource for the puberty talk as they provides kids with accurate and age-appropriate information about puberty. Below you'll find links to over 60 books about puberty (with recommendations to the ones that I keep on recommending to parents the most). I have sorted them into lists (by topic, age and sex/gender) so that it's easier to find what you're looking for.
