The importance of initiating conversations about puberty with youth

Puberty brings about so many changes, and it’s easy for young people to feel insecure and alone, especially when they don’t have access to enough information about this topic. By initiating conversations about this sensitive subject, adults can help youth manage feelings of stress and anxiety associated with the changes that either are happening to them, or will happen.

Here are three documents that highlight the importance of having these conversations.
