Having to buy a bra, wearing deodorant, having to shave and getting a period, are only a few of the changes that girls go through when they first enter puberty. When girls can talk openly with a woman they trust, these changes will be much less frightening.
From 5:30-8 p.m. April 11, Family Strengths Network will host “Tweens to Teens,” a workshop for 9-13-year-old girls and their mothers or other female adults.
The program gives girls a chance to talk about the physical and emotional changes that come with puberty, in a safe environment. They are given complete, accurate information so they know what to expect and how to deal with these changes.
