Schools only spend only a few hours a year talking about puberty and sex. Your appointment with your pediatrician doesn’t allow time to teach an entire course on these subjects. Parents have the best intentions, but sometimes miss opportunities to discuss sensitive subjects because they don’t know the “perfect” thing to say. We are here to start the conversation with you and your child so you can continue the discussion at home.

Turning Teen Workshops are geared to engage your child in learning about their body with you by their side. Our programs are interactive and even fun and provide age appropriate, medically accurate information that your child will understand. We provide you with resources and suggestions for how to “continue the conversation” at home. We ask (and answer!) the hard questions so you don’t have to.
Who We Are
We are pediatricians and mothers ready to facilitate comfortable, fact-based, personal conversations between parents and children about our changing bodies. We will provide insight gleaned from decades of combined experience on growth and development to help tackle difficult topics and challenging phases of life. Meet the Turning Teen team.
