Three Things I Hope My Daughter Learns During Puberty {G Day for Girls}

Pickles, Luke Bryan and Girl Power Ballads of the 90s.  I’m over at G Day for Girls sharing my story about puberty and three things I hope my daughter learns during puberty

EXCERPTS:
….I hope to have a relationship with my daughter that we can talk openly about her period. Not to put expectations on how it will be but I imagine one that crosses the sacredness and sisterhood of the Red Tent with the effortless banter of the Gilmore Girls, and lots of chocolate in between.
….. The one and only ‘sex talk’ I had with my parents was a one-sided ‘wait till you’re married’ with me nodding in the corner. In school I learned that the female anatomy looked a lot like the Dodge symbol and how the egg gets fertilized. I wish someone told me about what sex can mean to women, positive and negative.

WHAT IS G DAY FOR GIRLS?
G Day exists to help girls feel celebrated and supported as they begin the early stages of their journey to adulthood. It’s important to note that we are celebrating them as girls, not teens or young women
G Day is a conscious celebration that is designed to create a bond of Sisterhood among the girls, not dispense information about puberty, nor is it about becoming a mature adult.
WHEN IS G DAY?
