Pizza & Puberty
Tuesday, June 19, 6-8pm
Preteen girls (10-12 yrs olds) and their askable adult are warmly invited to an evening of learning, growing and celebrating puberty. Our workshop is designed to impart fact-based information, develop skills, and provide support. Each curious kid should bring one askable adult.
The June 19th workshop is for The International School community - current families, alum, and friends of TIS families. If you are not affiliated with TIS or your preteen is a different gender, please contact us and we can create an applicable workshop!
$15 per pair (one adult and one preteen)
We have room for 16 people (8 preteens + 8 askable adults)
Exception: twins, triplets or more - no additional cost!
5:30pm: arrive to order food and drink
6:00 - 7:30pm: puberty (physical, emotional, social changes and what to do about them)
7:30-8pm: human reproduction (all the ways humans can make new humans)

OK - Here is a confession. I just realized that this restaurant does not have pizza. But, they do have sandwiches, grilled cheese, and salads. And, beer for the adults! You can check out their menu online.
We believe that the best place for discussions around sexual health are in the home. Along with a comprehensive school-based curriculum, Roads To Family is here to help prompt, continue, and inspire those interactions by providing fact-based information, skills, and support for families. One of your jobs as an 'askable adult' will be to add your family’s values into the continued conversations. It’s not really about having The Talk with you child. It’s about having lots and lots of talks!
The focus of the workshop will be to provide information and answer questions about sexual health. Though the focus will be on puberty and our changing bodies, often students know more and are curious about additional topics. These topics are not always comfortable, and can be quite surprising. So, be prepared for all the topics within comprehensive sexuality education that may arise: Sexual and Reproductive Anatomy and Physiology, Puberty, Menstruation, Gender Identity, Sexual Orientation, Body Image, Relationships, Decision-Making, Sexual Activity, Masturbation, Friendships, Family Structures, Abuse & Assault, Affection, Sensuality, & Pleasure, Feelings & Emotions, Contraception.
Our discussion will be guided by Portland Public School’s Comprehensive Sexuality Education Policy which was developed in accordance with Federal, State, and District laws and policies, health education standards, and best practices.
We draw largely from curriculum developed by Advocates for Youth’s K-12, Rights, Respect, Responsibility comprehensive sexuality education curriculum http://www.advocatesforyouth.org/
