Talking to your daughter about becoming a woman is a hard task! Mothers, grandmothers, and/or female caregivers do not have to feel lost when trying to explain what will happen to their children as they mature. Come and participate in an educational program that will be offered by the University of Tennessee Extension beginning in April!

“Girl Talk” is a program designed to enhance communication between adults and their preteen daughters about sexuality, family values, decision-making and responsibility. “Girl Talk” is for mothers/caregivers of 9- to 12-year-old girls, and is unique to any other programs because it brings together women and their daughters into the same class in order to foster a bond that will hopefully last a lifetime!

The classes will be held on Thursday, April 4; Thursday, April 11; Thursday, April 18; and Thursday, April 25, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the UT Extension Office.

The first session will be for the moms and/or caregivers interested in learning more about this program. Moms/caregivers and daughters will attend the remaining three sessions together.

The class is limited to 10 mother/daughter pairs and pre-registration is required. The cost is $25 per mother/daughter. Scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to register is Wednesday, March 27, 2013.

To preregister or for more information about “Girl Talk,” contact Robin Ramsey at the UT Extension Office at 423-728-7001 or RRamsey3@utk.edu. UT Extension offers its programs to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, age, disability, religion or veteran status.
