I am new to Cafemom and have been searching the site in hopes of some wisdom. The key word search led me here and I know as Moms of teenagers you all have been down this road. I am hopeful someone can offer me some insight.
Samantha has had some spotting a few times but it was always gone before I knew it had happened. Today when she came home after school and was changing out of her uniform she screamed like she saw a ghost. I ran in to find her finding out she has started her period. I got her calmed down and she is now watching tv and wearing her first pad. I knew this was coming but I am absolutely not ready for it and neither is she. She is only 9 and I didn't start until I was almost 12.
