Palmetto Health Forums Let Kids, Parents Discuss Puberty

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Palmetto Health Children's Hospital is offering ways to help parents and children open up dialogue about puberty and sexual development.

On Sunday, Palmetto Health Richland is sponsoring Girlology, "Something New About You," and Guyology, "Just the Facts." Organizers say the forums are designed for fourth- and fifth-grade students and their parents to discuss issues about sexual development and maturity in a fun and engaging way.

The sessions are from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and cost $40 for one child and one parent. There are also forums tailored to fifth- and sixth-graders.

Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. Learn more or register at
