to girls, but also to boys?
These days many girls have their first period at age 9 or 10. I was 11 or 12 when I had my first period and I knew nothing about it. I was on holiday staying at an Aunts when I woke up one morning covered in blood....I thought I was dying, no kidding.
At what age is it best to have this chat with girls? But also, this is for parents of boys....when do you explain periods and what girls go through each month to boys?
