Talking about puberty and answering kids’ questions is hard to do for most adults. They might have difficulty using correct names for body parts, or explaining how babies are made. Fear, embarrassment, or even shame, can make amazing moms, dads, and other trusted adults retreat and say nothing at all.
Developed by medical and mental health professionals, Turning Teen makes it easier to talk about bodies, puberty, and sex. We help trusted adults start conversations with their children, whether at home, in school, or other safe community settings.
