Body Basics for Boys

Learning how their bodies grow, what changes to expect during puberty, and how to take care of themselves are valuable lessons for preteens. Body Basics offers those lessons in separate classes for girls ages 9-12 and boys ages 10-13. Both classes include informal, open discussions, a film presentation and take home materials. Each class also includes a brief and simple introduction to the opposite sex. It is recommended that a parent or trusted adult accompany each preteen. By taking the class together, you and your preteen can continue these important discussions at home.

Class Reviews:

  • "I appreciated that the instructor involved the boys because this class was about them. He did a great job talking in terms they could understand. Great class!"
  • “I am VERY impressed with the material covered and the manner in which it was delivered. I'm confident my boys know all they need to know about their changing bodies and more importantly to me, they learned not to be ashamed about any of it, and to be encouraged to ask questions and talk to us about it! The instructor also did a great job talking about changes for girls and how they, as young men, can always be respectful when girls go through changes. It really opened some doors for great conversation with my boys.”
  • “I already recommended it to several co-workers! The presenter was excellent – no-nonsense style while entertaining fit the topic and the audience nicely. Thank you for offering this class!”
  • “Very glad my son and I attended the class! Very informative without saying too much. Thank you!”
  • “The class was great! The presenter made my son feel comfortable and the content was easy for him to understand. I will be recommending this class to his friends’ parents.”
  • “Totally appreciate the explanation about what girls go through during puberty. I believe both sexes should understand what the opposite is going through. Great job!”
