St Bartholomew Parish, San Mateo
The Mother-Daughter Programs are designed to help you and your daughter explore God’s special gift of human fertility together. Help her see the beauty and wonder of God’s plan for growing up as a young girl or teenager and becoming a woman.
There are 2 separate programs: for ‘tweens’ in the morning, and ‘teens’ in the afternoon. The Tween and Teen Programs cover similar subject matter while differing in depth and scope. All presentations are pure, light-hearted and affirming!
(Note - ages are suggested - but each parent knows her child best, and which level would be most appropriate - outlines of the 2 programs are below)
* Girls younger than 10 who are already developing and showing signs of puberty are also welcomed to attend.

9:00am - 12:30pm
(for Mothers and their 10 – 12 year old daughters)
This program is very basic and is geared toward the younger girls’ anticipation of the changes that take place at puberty. Most girls will not have started ovulating or having periods, eventhough many of them are experiencing some of the physical and emotional changes.
1:30pm - 5:00pm
(for Mothers and their 13–16 year old daughters)
This is a sweet program to help the girls appreciate their femininity, have some fun, laugh a lot and become comfortable with their changing bodies and personalities. Little girls change into women, even if they would rather not, and all the changes are part of God’s wonderful design of women. The physical changes are preparing the girls’ bodies to be able to be mothers in the future. God wants every new baby to grow inside his mother’s uterus, and He has designed everything about a woman’s body to take care of His babies. The program really helps put the girls and their mothers at ease when discussing these topics!
