I have a 10 year old girl turning 11 this summer and I am bracing myself for her cycle to start. We all have had the experience of our first period and I remember what it was like for me. I was in the middle of class when mine started. Thank goodness our uniforms were a dark color.
I was more mature then she is at her age so I think I was a little more prepared. I'm not sure how prepared she is to take care of her hygiene like she should. Especially considering she is LAZY!! I have to push her to do just about everything. Her oral hygiene is the biggest thing.
I have noticed that she has started to ask more questions about it and everytime she starts to ask me something my heart stops. I've had the talk and showed her what to do. I just hope it sinks in and she's ready.
For those with girls approaching puberty.. How do you think they are going to handle it? How are you handling knowing your little girl is growing up so fast?
