My Daughter Got Her Period at Age 10 — Here's Why She Didn't Freak Out (and Neither Did I!)
For anyone who knows me, I love to talk about periods! I even started talking to my kids as early as they could walk — heck they were following me any time I went to the bathroom (#momlife), so I figured I might as well explain to them what they saw. I didn't want them to be scared or freaked out about it (like I was), and thankfully when my daughter got her period early at age 10, she was excited and proud. A true parenting success story! Here's how I prepared her for her first period and what we did to make it an awesomely positive experience.
