Body Talk for Parents of Boys.
Stubbs, Margaret L.
This pamphlet, targeted to boys' parents, discusses issues surrounding puberty. The introduction discusses education about menstruation and girls' and boys' attitudes towards it. Suggestions are offered for discussing menstruation with one's son. Suggestions focus on timing of introducing the topic; which parent takes responsibility for menstrual education; examining one's own attitudes towards menstruation; what kinds of resources are available; and the best approach to take and ways to facilitate communication. References are included and sources of information for early adolescents are listed. (ABL)
