The latest statistics from the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth reports that DeKalb County has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the Upper Cumberland region and ranks 38th in the entire state.
The University Of Tennessee Extension Office Of DeKalb County along with the Health Department are joining forces to offer a program designed to decrease the teen pregnancy rate in our county. “Girl Talk Tea Time” is an educational program designed to enhance communication between moms and their pre-teen (9-12 years old) daughters about puberty, sexuality, family values, decision making and responsibility. Your daughter is changing daily from a girl to a young woman. There is nothing you can do to stop the progress of Mother Nature, but you can equip your daughter with the knowledge she needs for her journey into womanhood.
Instructors for the “Girl Talk Tea Time” program will be University of Tennessee Extension Agent Mrs. April Martin, Health Educator Mrs. Michel Deaver with the Health Department, and Miss Alejandra Cisneros Conohan with Healthier Beginnings.
The “Girl Talk Tea Time” program will be held at the DeKalb County Complex on April 28-29 from 6:00 – 8:00 P.M. A light meal will be served each night in a “tea-like” setting. This class is limited to 12 mother/daughter pairs and pre-registration is required. Daughters must be between the ages of 9 – 12 years old.
The cost is $15.00 per mother/ daughter team. Please contact April Martin at 597-4945 for more information. The registration fee is due by Friday, April 25.
