Changing U

The Rites of Passage

For Mothers and Daughters, 8 - 9 Years Old

Changing U

A Great Place to Learn All About You

Changing U is an introductory puberty education class at The Rites of Passage, for girls and moms (or dads).  The focus of this class is communication and connection while strengthening the mother-daughter bond through shared experiences.

The interactive activities in Changing U make talking about puberty positive, and even FUN, which helps parents and children learn that these conversations don't have to be awkward, as most people think they will be. Puberty education and preparation classes, such as Changing U, also help to increase self esteem by preparing tweens for the years surrounding puberty. It is truly a gift to be informed, educated, and prepared for these changes before they happen. Moms and girls work together towards a common goal of opening the lines of communication while learning about essential topics such as:

  • Hygiene
  • Age appropriate body changes
  • How to communicate with adults/caregivers
  • Self confidence
  • Body positivity
  • Self care
  • Combatting negativity
  • Consent and body safety (safe vs. unsafe touch)
  • The basics of menstruation

It's never too young to start these conversations!

"Thank you for a wonderful, helpful presentation. Just enough factual information - great ice-breaker for conversations that will come up. Looking forward to Transitions & Journeys in a couple years. I really needed this - didn't realize how much I may have forgotten about puberty. This information will be a great resource for me. Thank you!!

"You’re so wonderful! You have such a way of communicating this information with grace and humor. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you today. It was a fun and safe environment. We loved it! And great to see you. Look forward to more."


I was really happy because it helped me understand what is going to be happening when I go through puberty. It was fun and I had a great time.

Our class was awesome! It made me feel really comfortable to know what to expect with puberty. I’m not scared about it anymore.

My daughter walked into our class crying because of how nervous she was, and came out smiling and happy because of our great experience together. Way to go!
