Sarnia, ON – The County of Lambton Lambton Public Health will offer Girl Talk presentations, an ice-breaker for parents and their daughters in grades 5 and 6 to discuss changes in puberty and menstruation.

Barrie Anne Rayworth-Wilson, Public Health Nurse with Lambton Public Health, says “Many parents find the subject of menstruation and sexual health difficult to talk about. Girl Talk is an ice-breaker, a way to begin and maintain an open dialogue between parents and daughters as their bodies begin to grow and change.”

The goals of Girl Talk are:

  • Make young females more aware of their changing bodies
  • Help them prepare for the onset of menstruation 
  • Help parents feel more comfortable discussing delicate issues with their children

Four (4) sessions will be held across Lambton County. Presentations are 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
