Frequently Asked Questions
What age girl is this class for?
I designed the course with girls aged 9-14 in mind, but the content could be helpful for girls who are slightly younger or older than that, too! You might find that the first few modules (introducing puberty, breast development, and body hair/odor) are appropriate for your daughter now, while the period/menstrual cycle section would be better suited for her in a year or two. After purchasing the course, feel free to watch sections ahead of time and determine which content your daughter is ready for! You’ll have lifetime access to the course, so it will be there when your daughter needs it.
What if my daughter has already started her period?
Even if your daughter has already started her period, this course can help explain the elements of puberty she has already gone through, and equip her to better understand and support her body’s menstrual cycle. The “Period Peace” section of the course is by far the longest and most in-depth section. I wanted to include as much useful information as I could, some of which might be even more helpful for your daughter after she’s started her period so she has more context and experience.
Do you talk about sex and birth control?
I do not cover sexuality or sex beyond mentioning that pregnancy occurs when an egg is fertilized by a sperm.
Because of the number of girls that are prescribed hormonal birth control for non-contraceptive reasons, I do briefly cover hormonal birth control and encourage everyone to do thorough research before using.
What if I don't agree with how you talk about _____?
If you want to frame a topic differently or skip sections altogether until your daughter is ready for it - please do so. You know your daughter best! If you have any questions about how I address specific topics, please feel free to reach out.
Do I need to have a laptop or computer to watch the course?
You will need access to a computer, laptop, or tablet to log into and play the video content. Technically, you could still access the videos with a phone, but I’d recommend a larger screen for the best experience of the text and graphics that appear in the videos.
