Going through puberty can be a confusing, difficult time for some children. Talking through both the physical and emotional changes can help to alleviate some of the worries they experience and help them to grow in confidence. This session gives pupils the opportunity to explore some of the changes they may experience and includes information on body changes, periods, mood swings and examines how pupils can manage their growing independence including personal hygiene, understanding privacy and ways to manage their wellbeing.
