Since my daughter has been getting older we have had to talk more about things that are out of my comfort zone. Maybe not out of my comfort zone, but things that I don’t want to talk about because I realize my little girl is getting older. Being a parent is hard, but being a kid is hard too, especially when your body begins to change. Communication with your daughter is important, help them understand the menstrual cycle, and learn to rise above the embarrassment of talking about it.
Why do girls have a period?
It’s very important to talk about the why’s and the how’s. As parents we know that boys and girls both enter into puberty differently. If we don’t explain this to our children, who will be doing the explaining? I don’t know about you, but I would rather know my girls are getting an honest caring answer from their mother, than wonder where they are getting the information. It gives me piece of mind to know that my girls know what is happening to their bodies, and they are hearing it from someone who cares.
How long will my period last?
Typically a period will last 3-7 days. It’s important to be knowledgeable on the subject, and explain that everyone’s period is different.
Many of us experience some type of discomfort before, or during our period. Whether they get them at first or not, be sure to explain so they know what is happening to their body if they do. Remember they might not know how to recognize camps at first. They might think their stomach hurts, when in fact they are fixing to start their period. Talk to them, make sure they know they can talk to you.
Having your period sin’t the end of the world.
It made my daughter feel better to know that she could still go on about her daily activities. She wanted to know that she cold still hang out with her friends, have fun, ride a bike, swim, and other things she enjoys.
What do I use, when do I use it, and how do I use it?
It’s your choice what you allow your daughter to use. Many of us might think using a pad, tampon or liner is common sense. However, I remember it was a foreign language when I started my period. I didn’t know how to use a tampon when I was old enough, I had to ask my mom. Sure that’s okay, and she answered it for me, but I would have rather her come to me. It took me months to get the courage to approach my mom about it. It’s a uncomforable when you are young, and it’s our jobs as parents to talk to them so they understand they do not have to be embarrassed.
Taking to your daughter about their period is not easy. Luckily U By Kotex® makes choosing the right product for women easy.
