Most schools do at least SOME education for girls about their cycle and what to do about it. When I was a kid there was a video and a "starter kit" that was just for girls around 4th or 5th grade. The "starter kit" came with tampons & pads as well as some information books and coupons. But it took me til I was nearly 30 to discover alternatives like cups and cloth pads.
For the schools which still have these classes do you think alternative methods should at the very least be mentioned if not explored in addition to regular pads and tampons?
I will be teaching my daughter never to use disposables, but I am sure there are LOTS of moms out there who still don't know this stuff is out there. But it's healthier and there is less waste. So I figure giving the young girls this information is not just sharing it with them, but also with their mothers, many of who could use it.
