Back to school is always interesting specially when I am trying to help my girls be prepared for their periods.  My oldest don’t like to use purses and my youngest is just beginning to learn about period preparedness.

There are many ways to prepare her for her first period from have the right products available to arming her with knowledge.

We received two cute little purses from Kotex Tween for the girls to put essentials in like chap stick, brush and  their tween pads.  They keep these in their back packs for easy access.

I have talked them about signs that their period maybe starting, for instance:

  • cramps and where they are felt
  • lower back pain

My first sign (one I didn’t recognize) was incredibly painful lower back pain.   The very next morning I woke up with my very first period.  Luckily it was the summer.  When it was time to go back to school I took a purse and put pads in it.  It was Jr High and back then pads weren’t available in thin, they were closer to a saddle.  So needless to say I wasn’t able to conceal mine as well as my girls do nowadays.

As far as knowledge goes, I try and discuss it with my 8 year old often but not too much.  If you need some extra ideas consider the Kotex Tween site.  It has great references to prepare for your talk with your daughter.  There are neat tools like a calendar with facts about puberty, questions your daughter may ask, and ways to start the conversation.  If you tween seems like one the would benefit from looking at a website themselves, the Hello Period page has questions by other tweens and teens that may be helpful.
