Mr.Puberty came with myths and shame. Growing up also meant being exposed to the world away from loving caregivers. When the word SEX is a taboo, how could she explain child sexual abuse to her girls? All this was serious stuff and she had to prepare her girls for it.
This is a story of a working mom of 2 little girls. Like all moms, she loved her angels to the moon and back. As they became older and independent, having their own little social circles, she found the need to teach them about growing up. She had to teach them to stay safe without scaring them.
She reached out to her girlfriends. All agreed that growing up had not been easy. Though they shared a lot of awkward and fun stories, they still had no clue how to talk to their own children. Wanting lessons that were fun yet honest, she set out to create it.
She met with her colleagues and friends to think over it .It was a pyjama meeting over BEER and WINE. 4 hours into the much hyped meeting, there was NOTHING. Another hour later, one among the group had an eureka moment. She said “dragon” and passed out.
Now her story had to have a Dragon. It was perfect. He represented all the growing up fears that she had. And same fear that her girls and their friends will have now. He was the harbinger of all bad things to come. They decided to call him Mr.Puberty a.k.a Mr.P.
