In this class, students will learn about:
- What boys experience during puberty (growth, muscles, shaving, skin changes and sleep needs)
- Myths and facts
- What boys should know about girls
- Sexuality and sexual reproduction
This two-part class is recommended for boys 10 to 12 years old and a parent or trusted adult. The sessions focus on what both the child and parent should expect as boys begin adolescence.
The goal is to create an opportunity for pre-teens and adults to receive information together in an engaging format and relaxed atmosphere. We emphasize family communication and resources to support young people on their journey through adolescence.
Every family will receive the book Will Puberty Last My Whole Life?, written by the creators of Great Conversations, Julie Metzger RN, MN, and Rob Lehman, MD. The book complements the curriculum of the class and gives families an opportunity to continue the conversation on these important topics at home.
