#TeenTalk with Boots UK

| 15 Comments

Mummy says….We are very happy to be supporting the fantastic #TeenTalk with Boots UK again this year. This year Gabby Logan is the campaign ambassador and is joined by her daughter Lois. With two teens in our family (and an older daughter of 20), I know first hand just how important it is to have open communication with teens at what can be a very daunting time for them.

#TeenTalk with Boots UK

Celebrity mum Gabby Logan and her 12 year old daughter Lois, have joined together with Boots UK and trusted brands including Always, Tampax and Venus for the second year of the #TeenTalk campaign, which provides parents with much needed tips and tools to have the #TeenTalk with confidence.

Puberty can be as difficult a time for parents as it is for the teen, and recent research from Boots UK and P&G shows just how challenging this time can be:

*33% of parents wish they could talk more openly with their teen

*68% of parents find it difficult to approach puberty topics with their teen, so much so that a quarter avoid the #TeenTalk completely

*1 in 5 parents are unsure about how to start the puberty conversation

#TeenTalk ambassador Gabby Logan is mum to twins and explains, “As a mother of twin 12 year olds, I understand the challenges of communicating with tweens all too well! They suddenly go from wanting to tell parents everything, to one word answers. But as every parent knows, you desperately want to give your children all the guidance, help and support they need and being able to communicate effectively with your teens is crucial to this.  What I love about the #TeenTalk campaign is that it helps to give parents the confidence to start and maintain a strong, open and honest conversation with their child through puberty and beyond”.

I completely agree with this, communication is key to supporting your teen and letting them know you are always there to listen. Sometimes, listening is enough but it is important to have insights and tips to hand too.

Sarah Newton, #TeenTalk campaign expert with over 14 years’ experience in working with teens has contibuted to an exclusive fantastic booklet which you can pick up in Boots stores FREE with the purchase of any Venus, Always and Tampax products.

To help teens to try different products, Boots will be running great value promotions too. You will also receive a free toiletry bag with each purchase,* a great way to help your teen daughter feel prepared with all the sanitary products she might need.

The #TeenTalk campaign runs from the 10 May – 6 June 2017 in Boots stores nationwide and boots.com. For more tips and advice on #TeenTalk and product information go to http://www.boots.com/teentalk.

  1. Wow, what a great campaign, I will be sure to check out the website, I have a 16 year old daughter so I know how tough it can be xx

  2. It’s a great way to communicate
    As teenagers are notoriously stripey parents are not always the people they talk too

  3. I’m glad this is a few years off for me to think about!

  4. This sounds like a fantastic campaign! I’ve got a few years until my little ones are teens, but I do wish I could’ve spoken to my parents more openly when I was a teen!

  5. I remember how tough it was as a teen to open up to my mum about teen stuff but slowly she helped me and we talked about puberty, what to use and expect. This is a lovely campaign

  6. I didn’t know Boots did this type of thing – but what great idea! I have a tween – soon to be a teen, so I hope they carry on running campaigns like this.

  7. This sounds like a great campaign – parenting a teen can be so testing!

  8. It’s really important for teens to be fully prepared for what’s going to happen, so anything that encourages this is great!

  9. This sounds like a great campaign, I don’t think my Mum ever really had the talk with me, she just gave me a book about periods and then asked if I had any questions a couple of weeks later…

  10. I think this is such a good campaign. In all honesty I don’t really remember having the talk with my parents when I was this age x

  11. Great message to send out! I never had “the talk” I just figured things out for myself with my friends! haha

  12. I hope my children will have the confidence to come to me with their problems. I bottled most stuff up because I didn’t want to upset my parents but I yell my children constantly that I want the truth no matter how hard I may find it.

  13. Great campaign, I find it difficult to talk to my daughter

  14. This is a very worthwhile campaign. It is so important to be able to speak to your children about puberty and about all the potential pitfalls around relationships and sex. It can be hard but it’s much better for them to get information from parents rather than misinformation from peers or the internet.

  15. This is a fantastic campaign, my mum was really easy to talk to about everything, I hope my two girls and son can talk to me about anything too, I try to be laid back so they know they can xxx
