There is a post about whether dad should have any say in his daughter and her tampon use....

My question is should MOM have any say in her daughters tampon use??

I personally feel if a girl wants to use a tampon, then it's her choice and her right. No mom should dictate how a girl deals with her period. Most girls will use tampons without mom's knowledge anyway.

(All of this is with the assumption the child is over 9 or 10 and mentally capable to deal with the care of her body)

I would let my daughter make that choice. I can't dictate what they are comfortable with.

Why would anyone care what someone else uses for their period...?

The use or non use of tampons should be the decision of the DD only. No one but her knows her own body.

Exactly this. She's the one who has to deal with it, she gets to choose

Quoting TrouserMouse:

Nope. Should be the Daughters decision.

Obviously she will be the one to make that choice.
I do feel we should discuss it.
I would prefer she use cloth pads. Or disposable.
But it's her choice and I plan to discuss honestly all the options for dealing with her period.

I still can't EVER see the reasoning for NOT allowing your daughter to use tampons. I mean, can someone explain to me, other then TSS, what the big deal is?
