Puberty, sex, STDs, and contraception are challenging but necessary topics of discussion between parents and their children. Dr. Fatu Forna created the From Your Doctor to You: Puberty Party, Womanhood Party and Manhood Party courses to give teenagers and young adults the tools they need to protect their sexual and reproductive health. The courses contain lectures with pictures, videos and practical exercises presented in a fun and easy to read format. It includes age-appropriate topics like puberty, sex, abstinence, and online safety, and will encourage teens and their parents to start or continue important discussions needed as they grow into adulthood. The Puberty Party courses are ideal for younger teens entering puberty and the Womanhood and Manhood Party courses are ideal for older teens entering high school, or young adults who are leaving home to attend college or start an independent life. Dr. Forna has hosted Puberty Parties all around the world, which have been featured on CNN and other news outlets!
She has now transformed the From Your Doctor to You: Puberty Party, Womanhood Party and Manhood Party events into fun courses that will bring the celebration of puberty, womanhood and manhood into the privacy of your home. The courses can also be paired with one-on-one video sessions for parents who desire private reproductive health coaching to further explore topics discussed in the course.
