Puberty means lots of changes — for your kid AND you. Their bodies change, they start exploring their identities, and their social lives become super important. Help preteens navigate the wild world of growing up in safe and healthy ways by setting boundaries, talking openly, and being a reliable source of information, love, and support. Even if they sometimes seem awkward or aloof, most kids do want information about bodies, sex, and relationships from their parents, and they ARE listening to you.
