The Teen Survival Guide is an all-in-one publication on key topics for girls.

Have you ever had a question that you were too shy to ask? Maybe something like:

  • “Does chocolate cause pimples?”
  • “What do I do if the kids at school make fun of me?”
  • “Can I get a sexually transmitted disease from kissing?”

Don’t worry — you’re not the only one! Every young woman has questions like these. Everyone can use some advice.

Having questions is a sign that you are growing up. It shows that you want to take care of yourself. Don’t be afraid to go to a parent or guardian, school nurse, or other trusted adult for honest and straight answers. They were young once, too!

You can also look to this guide for helpful information. It offers:

  • Activities
  • Fun quizzes
  • A glossary of new words
  • Questions from young women

And, if you want to learn more, you can check out or the other websites listed throughout the guide.

Get the info you need to make healthy choices for a strong future!
