Our 12 year old daughter has just started her period. I just wanted to say that we are so proud of her for doing such a great job with it. She cried a little the first day, but quickly became very independent, and did a wonderful job. She also went to school the next day and had no problems! I wanted to let all of you "Tween" moms out there know that I started discussing this issue with her at an early age, probably around 8 years old or so. Against my mother's judgement, I might add. We talked about it, I showed her the pads, and how they are used, etc.
I believe that by me doing this early has helped her to be the positive, independent 12 year old girl she is today. I am so thankful I did not wait to discuss it later on. Hope this is some help for you other mom's of young blossoming girls!
