Growing up and understanding it for Boys and Girls 2016
Talking with your child about growing up and what to expect can sometimes lead to questions unanswered and you asking yourself, "Did I give the right answer?" Bring your boy, age 10 to 13, and your girl, age 9 to 13 to our presentations and help answer questions, learn about the basic physical and emotional aspects of human growth and development, and discuss the facts and misconceptions. This class is taught by specialists in Human Development and Family Science at the University of Georgia. Click here for details on dates and times and how to register for this program.
