My 11 yr old step daughter is visiting on summer break and is on her period. She wants to go swimming, but she's never used tampons yet. I don't know when I should introduce her to them, and I don't want 2-3 weeks of her vacation wasted when all she wants to do is go to the pool. She relies on me (not her own mother) to confide in (due to the comfort factor), so she probably won't get the necessary information from somewhere other than my house. Any suggestions?
