Girl Talk is an initiative that targets preteen girls as a preventative method to reduce some of the stress and confusion that characterizes this developmental stage. It aims to provide young girls with a safe and friendly environment to express their concerns and discuss different aspects of development. It does so through integrating a variety of interactive tools to transfer knowledge and convey messages about healthy living to shape their learning experience and thus, gain a better understanding of the health topics discussed. This paper examines the importance of proper education on over-all health and body perceptions for preteens.
