'Girl Talk' For Parents and Daughters

This page was reviewed or revised on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 10:40 AM

Point Edward, ON - Lambton Public Health will offer Girl Talk presentations, an ice-breaker for parents and their daughters in grades 5 and 6 to discuss changes including puberty and menstruation.

“Many parents find the subject of menstruation and sexual health difficult to talk about," says Barrie Anne Rayworth-Wilson, Public Health Nurse with Lambton Public Health. "Girl Talk provides an opportunity to begin, and maintain an open dialogue between parents and daughters as their bodies begin to grow and change.”

The goals of Girl Talk are:

  • Make young females more aware of their changing bodies
  • Help them prepare for the onset of menstruation
  • Help parents feel more comfortable discussing delicate issues with their children

Four (4) sessions will be held across Lambton County. Presentations are 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
