Need to know what to say to your beloved kiddo about menstruation?
This is important information for kids of any gender, because not all girls menstruate and not all who menstruate are girls.
Maybe your mom just gave you a book and left you to your own devices. Maybe the grownups around you never gave you “the talk” about any of this. Sometimes these topics felt like they weren't even allowed to be discussed.
It makes sense...
Given how our parents were raised, they were doing the best they could.
There weren't sex-informed activists and educators telling Gramma & Grandpa what was appropriate to say when our parents were kids. It was all taboo.
So because they weren't really talked to about this, we really don’t know how to do this or where to start. We just have this sense of wanting to do it differently. This is where you will get those skills.
If navigating these conversations is new territory to you and you feel your child may get their period in the next year or so then this will help you to prepare both of you now so you can minimize uncomfortableness later.
