This ain’t your mama’s period talk.
It’s inevitable. “The Talk.”
About puberty, periods, hormones, sex. Ack! Sex! My mom-brain is imploding just thinking about it all. And your daughter is already rolling her eyes and sighing heavily at the mere mention of this all.
But this time in a mom & daughter’s relationship DOES NOT have to be (entirely) awkward and difficult.
I can help!
I’ve created a one-of-a-kind experience for moms and daughters to make puberty and menstruation easier to explain and understand. Dare I say, it’s even going to be fun!?
You and your daughter will enjoy light snacks and mocktails (ok, and a little wine for mom because!!!! OMG!!!!!), plus an afternoon of education and bonding with other moms and their daughters.
I’ll clarify false notions about puberty and menstruation, teach your daughter ways to deal with her fears (“How do I go swimming without a tampon?”,”Do I need to use a special soap “down there” to make it smell fresh”, and”What happens if I get my period in school?”), and so much more.
We’ll spend most of the day with our daughters and then split up at the end where moms will hear from award-winning author and mom, Kim Cook, about how to speak to your daughter about sex. The girl’s will work their way through period stations with me, learning need-to-know info, before we all come back together for a special closing ceremony.
I promise. I’ve done all of the heavy-lifting here so you don’t have to.
Unfortunately, this class isn’t going to be offered again for a while. So save yourself the drama and groans that are certain to accompany the DIY approach you planned to take and reserve your spot today!
What Moms are Saying…
Thank you so much for inviting us to this mom and me class. [My daughter] and I left feeling thankful that we were a part of it. I love the way you operate in creating a framework to look at yourself and make choices from love versus fear. That was a huge takeaway for both of us in nutrition and self-care and physical touch.
You bring what sometimes feels like a shameful topic or overly sexualized topic to the table with clarity and dignity.
P.S. [My daughter] has already started using some of your breathing techniques for relaxation as well as the running program she’s doing with other girls her age. Thanks!
Thank you so much for a fantastic evening with the girls. You did such a fabulous job on everything! All of the special details…..it was all so perfect. Thank you!
A Can’t Miss Class
For all of my Mom Friends with Girls!!!! This Is IT!!!! Carrie Kolar Koziol, at Pilates By Carrie did the most wonderful, caring and informative job talking, and teaching one of my daughters about the changes that her body will go through as she ages. Let’s admit it, these topics are uncomfortable, weird, awkward. I wish I would have been able to attend something like this when I was young.
Carrie made an awkward topic and situation, comfortable. She treated the girls like young adults, open conversation, no judgment, no strict ideas. Easy, gentle conversation and invitations for questions. I LOVED every part of the class. The time learning with my daughter together, and the time that Carrie gave to the girls separately. I also got to have separate Mom Time to receive tips on how to start the conversation with my girls.
There are not enough fantastic or eloquent words I could use to describe this class. I will be taking my remaining 3 girls, (yes, I will take each one on their own) for this class. It opened so many doors for more questions, conversations, and bonding opportunities with my daughter. The class gave so much information, some things that I wasn’t even aware of at my age.
Let’s encourage our girls to share, ask questions and empower them to talk about the difficult topics.
Thank you Carrie Koziol for creating this class!!! Please add me to your waiting list!!!
