Girls, puberty and periods
Have you talked to your daughter about eventually getting a period? Or will you in the future? How did or will this conversation go? Are you going to wing it or do you have a plan?
I was pretty candid with my daughter. I explained what it was and that she would get hers one day too. When her time came she was like "Oh great, guess what mom?" and I gave her sympathy and Advil. It wasn't anything that either of us made a big issue of.
I was always an avid reader and would read anything and everything. I was in the bathroom one day making an extended visit and I decided to read the insert to my moms tampons. By the time I was done reading the WTF meter was pretty high, so I had to ask my mom about that one. She laughed and explained it to me. I think I was in fourth grade?
