For Parents & Tweens (ages 10-12) – Girls* and boys are taught separately.
Also offered as Session II during our Rites of Passage series.
A 2 ½ hour class for parents and tweens who have not taken any puberty classes in the past.
Puber-Tween is designed for older tweens to help them feel at ease with the physical and emotional changes they are currently experiencing. This class helps them understand that these changes are perfectly normal and that everyone goes through them.
*In the girls’ class we discuss periods, and the girls make a “period kit” (using a cosmetic bag parents provide) and practice making makeshift sanitary pads out of toilet paper.
Parents receive tools to support their tweens during this major transitional time. A deep connection is established between parent and tween that makes ongoing conversations possible in a safe environment.
