So my DD is starting to develop. Early, I know right. I don't remember my mom ever having that convo with me. I don't know where to start. Any advice?

I show her on my body what's going on with her body. My daughter is 8 too & she's excited about puberty. Idk how to teach her menstrual care cause she barely wipes her ass!

LOL!!

 I attempted to do the same.. didn't go so well. She kept looking at my body as if she was utterly disgusted. She has little rosebuds on her chest with a tiny waist & plump rump. And she's 7!! My baby...

Last night I taught my 3 & 5 year old sons where babies come from cause my 5 year old always asks why vaginas have a hole. We haven't gottan to how the baby gets in yet although I did overhear my 5 yr old telling my 3 yr old penises get big in vaginas. He's more curious than my daughter was.
*I hope this reply isn't inappropiate!!

My daughter is 9. I was very open and honest, but kept it on her level. She now understands the changes her body will go through and menstruation. At 9 she actual has "phantom periods" on the same cycle with mine. So I thought I should explain what was going on. She was very intrigued and has questions on a regular basis. And can't wait for all these wonderful things to happen.
