Before your child is 2 years old, teach the proper names for genitals. From 3 to 5, talk about where babies come from and talk about consent, respect, and privacy. Prepare your child for puberty during ages 6 to 9, so it’ll be less scary for them. Both boys and girls should know about periods and safe sex. From 10 to 13, have open discussions about changing bodies and feelings. Come teen years, talk about feelings in relation to sex.
Puberty is a life-changing time for a teenage girl. Unsurprisingly, research indicates that nutrition significantly impacts the most important aspects of puberty. Periods, bone growth, weight – you name it. If you're the parent or guardian to a teenage girl and you're struggling to understand these changes, focus on food. It will make all the difference. By placing nutrition on a pedestal, you will help your girl prepare for a healthy future.
