my daughter is 9 years old and she got her period 2 days ago. I had already talked to her about it over the summer since I remembered getting mine at the age of 9 too. And also because I was recently was pregnant and she kept asking a lot of questions I explained to her what a period is and what its for but didn't go into detail about the birds and the bees. I don't think she even knows that boys and girls are physically different but then maybe i'm the one in the dark about how much she knows. Should I have "the talk" with her? and if I do how can I approach it without her being too weirded out by it? I was also wondering if I should take her to her Dr. I feel like she is really young to get her period.
