As doctors, we are very well versed in talking about bodies, puberty and sex. In the office and amongst friends, we hear parents having difficulty using correct names for body parts and explaining how babies are made. We noticed that these amazing moms and dads, out of fear for saying the wrong thing, retreated to saying nothing at all.
At Turning Teen, we strongly believe in helping parents start these conversations with their children. We aim to provide direct, informative and honest information about puberty and sexuality.
In addition to in-person and virtual puberty education, Turning Teen is passionate about helping parents and kids find the resources they need to navigate puberty and sexual health. Please check back often, as we update this section regularly.
