Strong Start - Talking with Your Child About Puberty

Tuesday, May 7, 2019 | 6:30 - 8pm at Woodin Elementary (12950 Northeast 195th Street Bothell, WA 98011)

Woodin PTA, in partnership with Northshore Council PTSA, would like to invite you to this Parent Education Night for parents and guardians of elementary aged students (grades 3-5).:

Parents want to talk with their child about puberty, but may not be sure how to start or what to say. Educator Robin Wright will lead this seminar which provides parents with information and skills on how to start conversations, what to cover at each age, and how to answer tricky questions. The physical, emotional and social changes of puberty are also reviewed to help parents feel better prepared and know what to expect.

Please RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/parent-ed-night-strong-start-talking-with-your-child-about-puberty-tickets-59392759342
