Invite Dad to the Conversation


When a young girl prepares to start her period, there are many common misconceptions that may bring about discomfort or stress. Today, we’re here to debunk one of those common myths: that dads are somehow not equipped or shouldn’t be involved in the development of their daughters. We’re here to tell you that this just isn’t the case! And better yet, when a father is truly invested in this stage of his daughter’s life – both sides will benefit. But listen up, dads: if you wait for the moment that your daughter approaches you about the subject, you may be waiting a long time. It’s important that dads realize the role they will play in this stage of their daughter’s lives, and how to approach this time with honesty, love, and support.

When a dad openly communicates with his daughter about her period, he’s doing more than having a conversation. He’s telling her that what’s happening to her body is nothing to be ashamed of, and it’s just one more stage in her development that is totally normal. This type of message is so important, and hearing it from her dad will make a huge difference. For far too long, girls and women have been told that periods are something to hide or be embarrassed by.

So, dad, if you’re still feeling a little nervous to approach the subject, that’s okay. Just know that whatever stress you’re feeling is most likely amplified in your daughter’s mind, and you have the power to alleviate that stress. That’s a pretty worthy cause, right? Put in the effort and the time to get educated and prepared; she’s worth it. Below, we’re sharing some of our best tips to do just that:

Monthly Mission: Dads & Daughters

Monthly Mission - dads and daughters


Dads can teach us how to tie our shoes, ride a bike, and drive a car. If we’re lucky, our fathers play an important role in many of the milestones of our lives, starting in childhood. But all too often, when it comes to menstrual health and development, a father’s place can become a little less clear. There may be embarrassment, shame, or confusion on both sides – and this can lead to a breakdown in important communication between a daughter and the invaluable support that only her father can provide. As young girls begin to develop, they may start to pull away or naturally try to hide these changes from their dads. The truth is, a dad’s role in this stage is just as important as remembering to put on her helmet before he sends her off on her bike. When a father participates in this formative stage of his daughter’s life, instead of letting her mom handle it, this signifies to the daughter that he accepts her, and will love her as she grows and changes. Because, listen up, dad: this is about way more than momentary discomfort. This is about arming your daughter with the confidence she needs to take on the world, knowing you’ve got her back. And that type of confidence? It only comes with massive amounts of open communication, love, and support.

Dads with Developing Daughters

Dads with developing daughters

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that your daughter is growing up. And for many fathers – watching their daughters hit puberty and go through so many changes so quickly is undeniably difficult. After all, this is Daddy’s little girl we are talking about.

Even so, it is important to know that in this day and age, 3 out of 10 girls are starting puberty at the young age of 8 years old. So what a daddy might see as his daughter pulling away from hugs and becoming increasingly self-conscious is really just a symptom of all the many changes that naturally come with puberty.

Fathers – How Menstruation Can Affect Your Relationship with Your Daughter

Believe it or not, as a father – you play a huge role in how comfortable your daughter is with her own femininity.  Girls who have a loving, supportive, compassionate, and understanding father have been proven in numerous studies to have more self-confidence and perform better in school (and life!)

It’s easy as a father to sit back and allow mom, or another female role model to handle the particulars of periods – considering those things ‘woman’s stuff!”  The problem is that if a girl in the midst of puberty sees her father avoiding the subject or throwing his hands over his ears every time someone mentions the word ‘period,’ the girl can often feel like her father is not accepting her transition to adulthood.  And this can be a problem.

Remember that this transitionary time in your daughter’s life is confusing for HER too – and the last thing she needs is to feel unaccepted by those around her.

Don’t Worry Dad, It’s Just PMS –

Are you screaming inside, “PLEASE…SOMEONE…help me with my teenager!” Do you ever get the feeling that your daughter hates you?  Or that once a month, you have no idea how to deal with her.  One minute the two of you are laughing and the next – your kindhearted jab about her clothes sends her reeling to her room in tears.

Help-me-with-my-teenager-PMSIf your daughter’s mood swings can sometimes give you whiplash, you might be experiencing what is called PMS: pre-menstrual syndrome.  And if you think its bad for you – you only know the half of how bad it is for your daughter.

Truth is, that PMS is real.

Due to hormonal surges before a female gets her period, she can suffer from a calamity of symptoms.  Often times, PMS comes in the form of physical symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, bloatedness, sore breasts, muscle aches, and food cravings.  And even more often, PMS serves up some pretty severe emotional reactions which can range from sadness and anxiety to anger, frustration, and difficulty focusing.
