Dear Parent or Guardian:
On Sunday November 4, Masjid Al-Huda will present a program on growth and development for girls ages 9-15 years of age. The purpose is to introduce the topic of “coming of age” and discuss areas of physical, emotional, and Islamic changes that girls endure during this time. Our goal is to provide a safe and loving space for girls to learn and discuss this sensitive topic with their friends and the speaker. The workshop will take about 4 hours, with break, snacks and then question and answers.
Each session will emphasize medical & Islamic information and throughout the class and attendees are encouraged to talk to a “trusted adult” during adolescence to answer their questions. Topics include: self-esteem, coping with change, concept of maturity, cleanliness & hygiene, basic Islamic rulings & accountability.
The girls are encouraged to continue discussion at home. The class is designed to make your child aware of and comfortable with the changes that are occurring to her body. The instructors are experienced on this topic and sensitive to any issues and have both Islamic & psychology background.
Parental permission must be granted for girls’ participation in program. No child will be permitted to attend unless an electronic permission is received. Please complete this registration page before Friday, November 2nd.
