Facts of Life

with Krista Margolis
Saturday, November 9th 1-5pm

STRAIGHTFORWARD • HONEST • OPEN

The Facts of Life is a workshop geared towards girls ages 10-14. We will discuss puberty and all that goes with it! Girls will walk away with a greater knowledge and appreciation for their amazing bodies and what is happening or about to happen as they embark on this physical and emotional change.

Topics include (but may not be limited to) the following:

*physical aspects of puberty (think boobs, body changes, menstrual cycle, hormones, pubic hair, sweating and more!)

*emotional aspects of puberty (think mood changes, new thoughts and feelings, peer pressure)

*social aspects of puberty (think stress, school/homework, sports, peer pressure, sexual identity, differences among peers, fitting in, difference between good friend and bad friend)

*self care (think sleep, nutrition, showering, skin care, meditation, journaling, stress management)

*self-image/self-esteem (ways to boost both)

*safety (only YOU get to decide who touches your body, making good choices, effects of alcohol)

*birth control (a brief overview, not a thorough discussion…because the question “So I will get pregnant every time I have sex?” seems to always come up!)

*masturbation (many girls this age are masturbating and need to hear that it is very normal and nothing to fear or be ashamed of)
