Sometimes talking about subjects such a girl’s period can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be.  There are many ways to find talkable moments.

You could take the “When I was your age approach.”  Ok so maybe I didn’t have to  walk five miles uphill in the snow, but I was just lucky enough to miss the sanitary belt era.  There was a time when we would have to use snaps and belts.  Before that, well I don’t even want to go there.

What a lucky girl she is, now there is adhesive backing on pads, even better they have wings!

Take the information highway, tweens love computers and being online.  Offer your tween a little computer time and show her the U by Kotex Tween site.   It  has a great information filled with information to help your tween learn about their period.  There are stories about from real girls about their first periods.  Answers to many common questions about their first period.  If she is already started and wants to share with other girls about her first experience, there is a place to do that too.

Opportunities to have an important “big” talk aren’t always at the most convenient time, but if your like me and trying to keep it casual and welcoming, take the moments as they occur.

  • As you walk by the products isle in the store.
  • When she rescues you in the bathroom with the new box.

I can always tell when my girls are ready to talk.  They will continue the conversation, ask more questions.  If they are not ready, they close up tight.  That is when I wait for another moment.

How did you or do you bring up the topic?
