Health and Relationship Information for Girls Ages 10 to 16

The ages of 10 to 16 can be difficult ones for girls and their parents. It’s an exciting time, but also a time often filled with worry, concerns, doubts, and struggles. The US Department of Healtgh-logoh and Human Services Office on Women’s Health created the girlshealth.gov website to promote healthy, positive behaviors in girls by providing reliable, useful information on the health issues they will face as they become young women as well as information on handling relationships with family and friends at school and at home.
