Explains the emotional, physical, and social changes that puberty brings. Includes a separate age-appropriate section on the female reproductive system and menstruation that can be shown at the teacher's discretion. Telling students that puberty can be bewildering at times, but assuring them as well that a whole new exciting world will be opening up to them, Looking Ahead: About Girls demystifies the physical and emotional processes that change girls into young women, and helps them understand that what they are feeling is natural and normal. In clear, informal style, the program discusses the importance of physical cleanliness, good nutrition and staying physically active; the growth spurt and breast and body hair development to expect, and the emotional changes that characterize this time of life, including an awakening interest in boys. Most importantly, the program emphasizes that while every girl goes through these changes, each enters puberty at her own pace Note: Because puberty's ultimate purpose is to prepare girls' bodies for reproduction, the program also offers an age-appropriate section on the female reproductive system and menstruation. It is suggested that you preview the second section and the accompanying teacher's guide before showing the entire program to students. Since the maturity of each student group varies, the program has been structured to provide a natural break between the two sections, enabling you to use the second part at your discretion.
