Moms how do you check your daughter's mentrual cycle?

You might be surprised to know just how many moms DON’T discuss this period thing with their daughters. There is no excuse for that and you should have the discussion as soon as possible. The easiest way to breach the subject is to talk about your own period with them and react to it as if it is no big deal. You don’t have to delve into the birds and bees talk simply because you are discussing a period. Instead, just talk about it as if it is a given (which it is) of being female. Talk about how it feels, what you need to do to take care of business in that department and try to lessen the anxiety for your daughter. The last thing you want is for your daughter to get her first period at school and think she is bleeding to death or sick; and for many girls this is exactly what happens. Then a perfect stranger, a teacher or a school nurse has to do the explaining. Talk talk talk talk! Even if your daughter doesn’t want to hear it she is listening.

Whether you believe it or not, your daughter has friends or friends of friends who have their period already and they probably know more than you think. Once you begin to see the tissue in their breast area start to look ‘pudgy’ you have on average of 6 months to prepare for your daughters first period. Buy her supplies to keep in her book bag and make sure they are in a discreet place so she can grab them should she need them. Tell your daughter that you really need to know when she has her first period as well. According to a survey as many as half of teenage girls do not tell their mom or dad that they are menstruating. If you do their laundry, make sure you check for that to be sure. Also discuss with them the options for cramping and discomfort that they may have so they can be sure to understand that it is part of monthly cycle. Don’t just buy the “blooming into womanhood” book and expect them to read it. At this point in your daughter’s life she needs you to pull out the friend hat!
