My 13-year-old daughter has been involved in the Teen STAR curriculum for several months. She has also taken ‘health classes’ at her school, but Teen STAR is so much more than your basic health class. I wish I would have had the opportunity to be part of a program like this when I was her age. She has learned SO much about how her body works, how her mind works, and how her spirituality connects with her life.
TeenSTAR is an amazing program! TeenSTAR teaches girls how to appreciate their bodies and their sexuality as God intends them to do, and how to develop healthy relationships that promote dignity, high self-esteem and self-respect. I am continually amazed in my practice as a healthcare provider, how little in general that women know about how their female body works. My two daughters, ages 14 and 16, are currently half-way through the TeenSTAR curriculum, along with 7 of their peers. They love it and look forward to every session! I deeply wish I had learned this curriculum as a teenager. I feel very strongly that TeenSTAR is the answer to improving appreciation and respect for one’s sexuality and increasing the number of young women who remain abstinent until marriage.
