New resource tackles the challenging topic of puberty.
(PRWEB) May 17, 2012
A new online resource called Things Are Changing aims to assist parents in addressing the challenging topic of puberty and sexual development in the lives of their children.
Few topics seem to present a greater challenge to many parents than introducing the issues of puberty and sexual development to their children. For complex reasons many parents find it a daunting task that they can often wish to avoid. A new online resource at puberty.co aims to provide parents with a comprehensive set of tools to give them the confidence to work closely with their children at an important time of their lives on this important topic.
Developed by large education services provider Choicez Media the resource consists of a series of videos for parents and their children in a secure online membership area as well as a PDF manual for parents and a PDF workbook for their children. The videos are also split into gender specific modules to address specific changes for boys and girls but also provide each gender with an overview of what is happening for the other sex.
Choicez Media founder Jonathan Doyle said, " We are really pleased that we have been able to deploy a very useful tool for parents that takes much of the anxiety away and gives them back the confidence to do what they are truly suited to doing. Often, all parents need are the right tools and some confidence and that is what we aimed to provide at puberty.co.
In recent years some research has shown the increasing role of peers, Internet and schools in the delivery of sexuality education for young people but other research continues to show that parents remain their children's preferred source of information on sexual and personal development.
Doyle said, "Some parents seem to think that they don't need to have the key discussions with their kids because they will eventually learn about it somewhere and that is true. They will definitely learn about it somewhere! The thing for parents to do however is to realise that they very best place for their children to be learning is from them. Sometimes all it takes is a good resource like Things Are Changing for parents to feel like they can actually step up and make a huge difference when their kids most need it."
There has been strong interest in the website at puberty.co with visitors from places as diverse as Tokyo, Connecticut and London. In coming weeks the site will also host a range of blogs to further resource and support parents. The site aims to become a central resource point for parents across a range of topic areas in the time ahead.
