Growing Up Game PlanAt Home
A masterclass for preteens on being more confident, more prepared and less stressed as they navigate life.
What to Expect
Designed in collaboration with preteens themselves, this 6 week online course will set your preteen up to:
✓ Celebrate who they really are
✓ Come to terms with puberty
✓ Use their inner power to honour, manage and express their emotions
✓ Stand up for themselves and what they believe in
✓ Foster healthy relationships
✓ Stay safe and have fun online
And, as a result, you’ll feel:
✓ Less overwhelmed
✓ More empowered in your parenting
✓ Relieved that your preteen has heard the messages you want them to hear
✓ Grateful for less drama, more harmony, and more fun in your relationship
✓ Like you’ve provided them with a fun and valuable learning experience
Module 1: SMASHING THE BOXES: Breaking free from gender stereotypes.
Julie takes the lead in this module to talk about how gender roles and gender stereotypes have an influence on our identity.
Module 2: MONSTERS AND SUPERHEROES: Using your inner power to honour, manage and express your emotions.
This is where students meet their Monster (inner voice), Blob (representing emotions) and Superhero (their heart centre, intuition, tiny voice inside us that deserves a megaphone). Students learn how to mute their Monster so their Superhero can lead the way.
Module 3: STANDING UP: Being assertive in even the toughest situations.
In this module, Saleema shares her own story of being bullied in grade 5 and what she learned from that experience. She does some role plays with one of our influencers to demonstrate assertiveness skills.
Module 4: HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS: Making sure yours are HERI.
Brandy plays the role of a fortune teller in this one, predicting that students will have HERI relationships in their future. We’ll keep you in suspense about what HERI stands for, but Brandy stresses the importance of open communication, consent and boundary setting in both friendships and romantic relationships.
Module 5: PUBERTY Understanding, rolling with it, celebrating your body.
In this module we meet Brandy BiggerBoobs and Saleema SmellyPits, anchors of Puberty News Tonight who deliver their special report on preteens and body image as well as answer puberty questions from viewers.
