Growing Up

game of cards

The developmental processes that occur during puberty are fundamentally biological, but many others correspond to socio-cultural spaces:Menstruating or having an erection are actions related to the functioning of hormones and body changes. But wearing or not wearing a bra, waxing or using certain elements for menstrual management are cultural issues that can be debated.

If you know children who are about to start puberty, this is an ideal game to start talking about what will happen to them in the near future. In this way, not only will they have more and better information, but they will clear up doubts and fears about their growth. And if they are older, they will be able to reflect on what is happening to them.

To keep in mind:

it is a game that can be used also with children or adolescents with some type of autism spectrum disorder or mild mental disability.
