What should I do?

Oh, my... My dd (11) just started her period last month and this month I've noticed she is such a 'bearcat'. I can hardly stand it. She is more... mouth, sarcastic, short than usual and this morning at the bus stop she "just leave me alone" and was so... owly and teary. Did anyone/has anyone had this problem w/their girl and what did/do you do?

  • I have my very own bearcat here. Then the next wk she will be crying for you to hold and pet her. In a way it is kinda cute but in another way I know how she feels so I feel sad for her. Let me know what helps u.
