Preparing Positively for Puberty 

TK-8th Grade Parent Education

Do you have an embarrassing puberty story? Most of us do! While we can't prevent every mortifying
puberty moment, we can prepare our children for puberty by teaching them what to expect as their
bodies transition from childhood to adulthood. Learn how to break down "the big puberty talk" into
tiny talks that are more comfortable for both caregivers and children. We will review resources such as books
and web sites that can simplify the process of starting a tiny talk.  We will discuss activities that can promote a positive and practical attitude toward this important life stage.

Parenting LGBTQIAP2+ Children 

All Grades Parent Education

LGBTQIAP2+ - a list of initials, numbers, and symbols that describes a vibrant community of individuals keeps changing.  The dynamic nature of the list, while potentially confusing, reflects the ongoing efforts of the community to both represent and welcome individuals with unique and evolving ways of defining themselves with regard to biological sex, gender identity, romantic attraction, sexuality, spirituality, and advocacy.  We will define LGBTQIAP2+ and facilitate a conversation focused on parenting and caregiving LGBTQIAP2+ children.  We invite attendees to share questions, experiences, and narratives that will nurture greater understanding and acceptance of diversity in our world.  Enroll online TODAY at Poway Adult School
