Yes!!!!! Any trusted adult (grandparent, relative, neighbor, family friend) that is comfortable being a role model and trusted resource for a tween is welcome to register and attend!!!! In addition, we have had dads at the girls programs, and have [...]
In general, we recommend that most girls start with the Talk 1: Body Basics class. This class is great for girls (ages 8 and up) in so many different stages: pre-pubertal; in early puberty; or even those that went through [...]
Listen, we get it. Parenting is hard. Parenting a tween is harder. We recommend that you make the decision about whether your child would benefit from our workshop. If you feel he/she would, simply tell them you have signed up. [...]
