SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The onset of puberty can be a daunting experience for a young woman and her parents, with many changes taking place all at once. These changes are not only physical, but also mental and emotional.

On Thursday (Nov. 9), KSLA was joined live by Ameera Katesh, an area medical student who wants to educate young women and their parents on the impact puberty has on a girl.

Katesh talked about why it’s so important for parents to talk to their kids about puberty, and previewed an upcoming interactive workshop parents and their teens can attend.
