TURNING TEEN

Start the conversation

 

Helping tweens transition into adolescence without

shame, secrecy, or embarrassment. 

Dr. Lisa Klein & Dr. Carrie Leff

As pediatricians, we understand the medical side of puberty.  As moms, we worry about the emotional side of puberty.  Getting children to understand their changing bodies and minds is a fragile puzzle that everyone could use help with.  We can help guide you through this exciting (and awkward) time of change!

Dr. Lisa Klein, founder of Turning Teen, practices pediatrics in Michigan. She is passionate about teaching adolescents and parents how to communicate and have those not-so-comfortable conversations.  In between work, her kids’ activities and volunteering as a summer camp doctor, she constantly seeks ways to continue learning and to help ensure healthy and happy kids in the communities she serves. She recently co-authored "Celebrate Your Body 2", the ultimate puberty book for preteen and teen girls. Dr. Lisa is grateful for her support from her three boys (two sons and one husband!) who have been her inspiration for her recent career path.

Dr. Carrie Leff, founder of Turning Teen, practices internal medicine and pediatrics in Michigan.  She is passionate about all aspects of women’s health.  Her passion led her to Turning Teen, where she enjoys helping kids and parents navigate the perils and pitfalls of puberty, and allowed her to co-author a book on puberty, "Celebrate Your Body 2". As the mother of 3 daughters, Dr. Carrie truly understands the pressures that both teens and their parents face during adolescence. She considers motherhood to be her greatest challenge and reward.

Parenting isn’t easy...especially as you enter the tween and teen years.  Conversations can get more difficult and a bit more awkward as your kids start to grow up. Turning Teen doctors can help you start the conversation with your kids about bodies, puberty, body safety, pornography, sex...and everything in between! Schedule a 15 minute session with one of the Turning Teen pediatricians to learn about the amazing resources available to you along this parenting journey to raising body-literate, body-safe teens. Let us help you help your kids so they will turn to you for reliable, safe information as they grow up. (We are happy to answer most questions for you, but this is not a medical consult and we will refer you back to your own physician for specific medical questions about your child)
