The Woman’s Foundation has offered the ‘Body Talk’ program to children in Acadiana for years. With the ongoing pandemic, they have now made the program virtual. If you want to help your child feel more comfortable with the changes in their body, this program is perfect.

The Body Talk class is for pre-teens, ages 8-12 years old. The class covers the basics of puberty for young adolescents. It’s perfect for children currently going through puberty, showing the first signs of puberty, or have friends who are showing signs of puberty. The instructor will discuss topics such as the five stages of development, good hygiene habits, feelings and emotions.  An in-depth explanation of the menstrual cycle is included in the class for girls. All classes are offered separately for boys and girls. A parent must be present with their child for the Body Talk classes and Beyond Body Talk classes.
