This video explains the physical and mental changes girls experience during puberty and and provides a guide to deal with them. It also offers strategies to help girls make friends, start dating, and prepare for the future.

The intended audience is girls nearing or going through puberty, and counselors, teachers, and parents who support them.

REVIEWS

"A straightforward, well-written, easy to understand, comprehensive, enjoyable treatment of an amazing variety of topics all girls need to know -- not just girls who have difficulty with socialization. (Frankly, I think almost every girl in puberty has problems with socialization and navigating the rough changes in body and social expectations.) The narrator feels like a friend who cares and wants to help, rather than an adult lecturing. She's a gem. Watching this made me remember covering bits and pieces of all the video's topics with a wide range of girls over the years, mostly fifth through eighth grade. I keep thinking of groups I would love to have see this because the video did such a thoughtful, non-threatening, thorough job." Dr. Nancy E. Holmes, M.D., Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, Washington University in St. Louis.
