My oldest is 9 and her doc has pointed out that she is now pre-menstrual (shudder). I have talked to her about babies and her body but I'm not sure how much stuck, kwim?
When I was going through it I was given a book called "Love and Sex: The truth about your body" (or something like that) and it really answered some questions I had that I wasn't sure I could ask my foster parents.
With having had no one to talk to myself I'm not sure I know how to answer her questions and want to get her a similar book to help her through this. I'm sure she doesn't understand why she cries all the time for no reason, why her clothes fit her differently, and other feelings that she has hinted at but not outright said.
Do you ladies have a suggestion for a book for a girl about to be a woman that might help her a bit in ways that I never had an example to follow? I want to be there but I just don't know if I know how.
Thank you for any advice in advance :-)
*EDIT* I went to BN.com to look up some books for girls and found this one.
Has anyone given it to their DD?
