Most Girls Have Questions

What is a Healthy Relationship?


During the early teen years, girls' bodies change rapidly, and at the same time differently from one another. This often leads to questions when you look at yourself, as "Am I normal?".

GirlsHealth is a safe space for girls to learn about health. Body image, relationships, and how to take care for yourself are common themes that come up for every girl at this time in her life.

Relationships at school and at activities become very important. You may have a best friend or a group of friends. Good friends mean alot to girls.

There may be a shift in relationships with family members. Friendships might a times be disappointing too. A girl may think at times, "I feel alone." It's important to know that these changes can often create stronger and better relationships. (Although the road there is sometimes rocky...)

As you grow older you start to make more of your own decisions. One good way to take care of yourself is to find reliable information so that you are well informed as you make the best decision for you. For example, if you decide to start shaving there is important information that you'll want to know.

Again, welcome to DoubleSunrise…a space where you will feel comfortable as you learn and interact. In the process you will become empowered to be as healthy as you can be!
