Summary

Summary

This book contains informative, honest, and reassuring answers to questions that preadolescents have about puberty--from friendships and feelings, to pimples, babies, body hair, menstruation, bras, and much more. Straightforward, age-appropriate answers are provided by an experienced nurse-and-physician team who have been giving seminars to preteens and their parents throughout the Pacific Northwest and Bay Area for more than 25 years. Each question in the book has been asked by kids during their classes (many of them frequently). This new edition also contains updated language throughout and additional questions and answers regarding sex, sexuality, consent, and gender identity and norms.The book is also filled with lighthearted and often humorous full-color illustrations throughout.
