Puberty, sex, STDs, and contraception are challenging but necessary topics of discussion between parents and their children. Dr. Fatu Forna and Dr. Shekou Sesay co-created the From Your Doctor to You: Puberty Party course to give boys ages 10-14 the tools they need to begin to protect their sexual and reproductive health. The course contains 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 boys and their parents to start or continue important discussions needed as they grow from boy to man. Dr. Forna and Dr. Sesay have hosted Puberty Parties all around the world, which have been featured on CNN and other news outlets! They have now transformed the From Your Doctor to You: Puberty Party into a fun course that will bring the celebration of puberty into the privacy of your home. The course 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.
So put together a goodie bag of fun items (candy, deodorant, a favorite electronic device, or other goodies), and throw a private Puberty Party for your son as he grows from boy to man!
