Great Site for Tween/Teen Health Questions

I stumbled onto TeensHealth yesterday while looking for answers to a puberty-related question for one of my kids.  The answer was thorough, helpful and reassuring (turns out about half of all boys have the same thing happen).

This particular question was rather specific and it was something I’d never heard of — not that that means much, since I went through puberty as a girl, I suppose.  🙂  I was impressed that the site had such specific information, though, instead of just the standard “here’s what to expect” pages.

It looks like a good site to share with boys and girls who might have their own questions about changes they’re going through.

The teens’ Q&A section has questions from teens on all of these subjects, with answers from experts.

Girl Stuff

Guy Stuff

Periods

Birth Control, Pregnancy & STDs

Sex

Relationships

Friends

Parents & Family

Emotions & Mental Health

Depression, Suicide & Self-Injury

Body Image & Self-Esteem

Dieting & Weight

Food & Nutrition

Fitness, Exercise & Sports

Alcohol & Drugs

Smoking

Personal Hygiene

Skin

Sleep

Doctors, Hospitals & Medicine

Mononucleosis

Metabolism & Growth

Health Conditions & Illnesses

School & Jobs

The site has larger sections for kids, for parents, and for teens.  It looks like a good resource for health and sex ed.

I have not read through that much of it, though, so you might want to preview it yourself before recommending it to your child.

If you have any other health/sex ed sites you recommend, please add them in the comments!
