Hey intentional parent, I get why you are asking ...

"Will she be OK?"

It may be a simple question, but it has layers!

Even if you are unsure, you CAN

Prepare your preteen with the knowledge and skills to be comfortable with her body 

so she can walk through the social, emotional and physical changes of puberty with confidence.

Be guided by Psychologist and Pre-Teen Expert, Dr. Sheryl Ziegler, as you learn how to navigate the social, emotional and physical changes of puberty together.

As you send her out the door each day (or drop her off) ...

to school,

to sport,

to music practise,

to a friend's house ...

there they are! Those nagging questions you wish you had answers for ...

17 (3)

You remember back to when she was a baby and she relied on you for everything?

Now it seems that stage was so much easier.

This new territory brings so many aspects that are out of your control.

Is she healthy?

Does she have solid friends?

Will she be invited to parties?

What will happen if she get's bullied?

How will she handle influence?

... it's understandable you have these conerns, especially if she's your first daughter.

If you're anything like me, you want her to KNOW that she CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!

 

And she can!

But she's about to go through one of the HARDEST TRANSITIONS of her life.

 

If you're mom, you've been there! You may have even been left floundering, perhaps not even feeling "seen". The whole season may have felt taboo!

If you're a dad, you know you want to help because you're "Mr. Fix it", right?

And this is your little girl

but .... ??????

Helping Your Tween

SO WHAT'S A PARENT TO DO?

"How do I prepare her for ...

The PHYSICAL changes

The EMOTIONAL unknowns

The SOCIAL challenges

 

yet help her learn to

 

CELEBRATE her body and it's changes

 

so she walks into AND through puberty with 

 

  • EXCITEMENT
  • EMPOWERMENT

and

  • CONFIDENCE

 

As parents, we want her equipped so she ....

Is not caught off guard

by the physical changes that take place in her body (and is prepared for "surprises".

Knows why she has emotions

that "she does not understand!" (and is confident that she's not going crazy, at least not alone).

Is prepared with answers

to the social pressures whether direct or indirect (so that bullying and 'the Joneses" don't rock her boat).

Puberty is a lot to deal with, right?

5 (7)
24 (1) (1)

And not only do you want her to THRIVE!

You also want to SURVIVE!

So Mom and Dad,

YOU WONDER...

where do you find the answers to ensure she's well prepared?

The TV...

Maybe not?

Most parents are already aware of the damaging effects some shows can have on our girls perception of their bodies and how life should look.

Yet, it's easy to miss some of the things they are inadvertently picking up, even from the things we are watching.

Take time to make sure that this is not the source of information that is forming her perception of puberty and her body.

Your daughter is entering an age of greater vulnerability.

It will already be hard enough to watch that child-like innocence disappearing

 

Ensure you are guiding the education that she is receiving about her body, puberty, relationships and emotions.

Books ...

Some have been helpful?

There is certainly value in information received from books, although it can take some time to make sure you have read through beforehand.

Whichever way you go about it, there is greater impact in doing it together. Create the bond that these discussions bring, open the doorway for her to feel safe to communicate.

Peers ...

I think we can all agree that this is probably not the most beneficial place for your daughter to be receiving her guidance on what lays ahead, what's happening to her body and how she should think about it.

Parenting is not an easy road, but it's a rewarding one.

We have an incredible responsibility and opportunity to raise a generation of girls who can celebrate their body and it's changes

... and then carry that confidence into the world to create positive change.

Millions of PARENTS & DAUGHTERS are wanting the same thing right now.

“I thought I had thoroughly covered all the important topics with my daughter on my own, but I couldn’t get over how much she seemed to be learning for the first time from Dr. Ziegler’s talk! I tend to get information overload very quickly, but the short segments were perfect for us and our busy lives.

My daughter and I would snuggle up and watch a segment, then pause and talk about what we just heard.

Sometimes it was just a 5 minute clip and then we would talk, and other times we just watched the segment all the way through and saved all of our chatting until the end.

It’s so easy to take it at your own pace. Thank you Dr. Ziegler!

STRAIGHT FROM OUR HAPPY CUSTOMERS

Start with the Talk is amazing!

Dr. Sheryl introduces and explains all of the material in the perfect order so the girls receive it thoroughly. We decided to have ‘the Talk’ with a few of my daughter’s close friends and their moms. It was a special afternoon for the moms and girls.

The small group setting enabled some girls who are quieter to listen to other girls' questions and provided a safe environment. There were laughs, tears, and heartfelt moments.

Dr. Sheryl’s videos are wonderful in that they are hands-on and prepare the girls for exactly what to expect. I look forward to having the experience with my younger daughter in a few years!

I highly recommend it for any mom and daughter who are entering the developmental years… is great preparation for what is to come! Thanks Sheryl!

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE WITH

What Is Not!

Start With The Talk IS NOT sex education.

Most parents don't believe their young girls are ready for thoughts and discussions around sexual activity, especially as the onset of puberty becomes earlier.

Sex education is often what is presented in school.

However, most parents like you are looking for a Parenting course to engage in with your daughter so you both gain understanding and appreciation of this childhood phase.

As your daughter is helped to understand the physical, emotional and social changes of puberty she can confidently face middle school and beyond.

What is covered in the "Start with The Talk" Online Course

Lesson #1: A Welcome Message from Dr Ziegler:  We begin with an introduction from me and what to expect in the lessons. You receive lifetime access to each 45 minute pre-recorded lesson.

Lessons #2- #6: Cover the changes occurring during puberty in the 3 key areas seen below.

MODULE 1

Physical Changes

Untitled-design-57-1-1024x689
  • Help your daughter gain a deeper understanding of the changes going through her body. This module will teach your daughter about the importance of hygiene and how to manage it.

MODULE 2

Emotional Changes

33-1-1-1024x689
  • Managing emotions requires being able to identify, interpret, and deeply understand them. Learn how to identify each other’s emotions (anxiety, stress, self-image, etc.) and how to respond to her feelings appropriately.

MODULE 3

Social Changes

30-1-1-1024x689
  • Social changes are what girls care about the most. Learn about how mood can affect friendships, why friendships change, and other social issues such as bullying and social media use.

School-based puberty education usually includes physical changes (and sometimes emotional changes) but rarely social changes.

Lesson #7: A Bonus Q & A from Dr Ziegler:  Responding to some of the questions girls have placed on "secret" question cards at the end of the in-person training I've done for many years.

Imagine knowing what to say and when to say it

WHAT WILL YOU COME AWAY WITH?

  • Unlimited Access gives you continuous parental support available to you throughout your daughter’s growing years. The Facebook Community will have a steady stream of relevant and up to date information.

 

  • Be an Empowered Parent and confidently parent your growing daughter setting her on a flourishing path to womanhood.

 

  • Never worry that your daughter is keeping anything from you. Reconnect with your daughter and create a space where she can openly discuss anything that is on her mind with YOU.

 

  • Peace of mind knowing that teenage challenges are normal and feel support from smart parents who have the same aims and proactive approach with sensible discussion and shared concerns.

Parents! 

- YOUR TIME AND MONEY IS VALUABLE! 

In my private practice, I work with moms that are willing to do anything to support their daughters

I have yet to meet a mom who isn't!

For many moms and daughters, individual therapy sessions are a common choice.

But therapy is not always necessary, and it can be expensive.

If a therapist provided all the information included in "Start With The Talk", it would require at least ten sessions. At an average of $250 per session, that’s $2500.

Therapy not only costs money, but it costs time. A series of in-office therapy sessions can take weeks or months, which can be frustrating for tweens when issues arise because they don't want to wait for help...they need help immediately!

Access is instant to "Start With The Talk". And at $147, it is less than the cost of one therapy session.

Due to an overwhelming need for this education, and the fact that I could not be everywhere, I decided to make it as accessible as possible by taking it online in a professional presentation.

I know this training make a huge difference in the lives of our girls, it reduces anxiety, helps them realise they are not alone, and provides a unique opportunity to spend special time with mom.

That’s something you can’t put a price on — your daughter's health and happiness, and your connection.

It's never too early to have ‘the talk’ — but waiting is not the best plan of action.

DON’T WAIT!

Give her the opportunity to feel "seen" as you watch Dr. Ziegler's warm, reassuring and straight forward presentation.

It's time we equipped the next generation of girls with a greater capacity to love and accept their bodies in a way that helps them grow into healthy adults who see their body as a gift.

So what’s a parent to do?

Put yourself in her shoes ,,,

You were once like her mom. You’ve gone through puberty and the uncertainty that comes with it. You may even have painful memories of your past pre-teen self.

What made you feel lonely, hurt, and misunderstood? She could go through the same thing.

The thought of talking to Mom & Dad, siblings, or friends, may feel threatening.

Don't wait until she’s convinced that absolutely no one understands her anymore.

Give her the opportunity to start on the front foot.

(or to still gain better understanding if she's already in the throes of puberty).
