Project Puberty January 23, 2012
Do you have a son or daughter growing up so fast you can hardly believe that puberty is on the horizon? If so, I know just how you must feel, because I’ve got a new 11-year-old who is launching right into a state with which I am completely unfamiliar. Never fear, though, because KidsHealth.org is here, and it’s designed to “talk” to kids, teens, and parents in different formats. Just click on the appropriate link, “parents,” for example, then switch over to “kids,” like I did, and plop your kiddo in front of the screen for an age-appropriate lesson. Here’s some puberty stuff to get your growing one started. There’s also an audio option if reading is not a preferred method of receiving information. This site met all of our initial needs — we know what to expect, and so does the boy whose body is about to go through major changes!
