You just got 3 completely different answers. If surfcitymom comes back (hopefully) she can expand on her answer and I will do so too. That way you will have a bit more to choose from.
My answer is based on being on the swim team through high school and from having a 15 yr old daughter. When she started (6th grade). Offer it to your daughter, if SHE is uncomfortable with the idea... then obviously she isnt mature enough. But if she is ok with the idea then there really isnt a reason not to use them. Purchase the thin ones and let her practice. Again make sure she understands that it MUST be changed out.
Those are my reasons.... periods are normal and natural and tampons are a wonderful option to deal with them... IMO
