A Celebration Day for Girls with Jane Bennett

Sunday 4th Nov or 11th Nov 2012

 

At the Celebration Day girls enjoy lively discussion, fun 

activities, women’s stories  and  gentle celebration of 

the magical threshold of puberty and menarche.
Celebration and positively presented information around these 
topics has a profound impact on body image, emotional health 
and menstrual experiences, which in turn empowers young 
women in their relationship, fertility and sexuality experiences 
later on.
While sexuality and contraception are not covered during the 
Celebration Day for Girls there is a connection of course, as 
menarche is a signpost at the beginning of a girl’s fertile years, and 
the menstrual cycle an intrinsic aspect of her female sexuality. By 
enabling a healthy and grounded experience of these changes 
girls’ self-esteem and self-awareness is deeply nourished, well 
before they are involved in romantic or sexual relationships. In 
this way we can support a physical and psychological integrity 
that underpins healthy decision making around relationships, sex 
and fertility when that time comes, as well as other life choice

The first part of the day is spent with the girls on their own and just before lunch the mothers/female carers will join us for the rest of the day (and grandmothers who are available and wish to participate). 

And, for Mothers

Given the relatively short time that I can be with the girls there is an obvious limit to what I can cover of this vast, fascinating and vital subject. Much of the role of provider of information, wisdom and guidance will fall, naturally and rewardingly, to mothers and female carers.  

For this reason we meet on our own for a two hour session before the Celebration Day. This is an important preparation for the Celebration Day and has ongoing benefits for mothers and daughters.
