Hello mothers out there! This question has likely been done a 100x's but just wondering to those who have daughters that maybe at the age of puberty or past it, or not even there yet? How did you talk to them about it? Or How would you go about talking to your daughters about reaching puberty like wearing a bra, shaving the legs and arm pits, getting her period? All my mom did was warn me I don't remember what she said but I remember my mom telling me what I would feel and stuff before it happens or has happened so I wouldn't feel so alarmed of what is going on. I thought of finding a book for young girls on their bodies and stuff, and just sort of go read through to get some good guide lines on how to explain it. But I can tell her in somewhat my own words too.
I mean my daughter is almost 4 so she's got a ways to go yet, but then again if she is anything like I was, she might get her period at 10 like I did, I started developing at 9 I was a very early bloomer, and it was quite embarrassing, and I hear girls now a days are developing much earlier these days.
