Touching base regularly lets her know you are there if she needs you – even if she doesn’t want to answer your questions. Doing this will build trust and show that you care. Many times, even girls that prefer to keep to themselves will open up here and there and ask questions when they arise. Ask questions like:
“How are things going – do you have any questions about your period?”
“Are you happy with the products you are using – would you like to try something else?”
I hope this helps! Please let me know if there is anything else we can help you with.”
If you relate to this mother, have no fear. You are not alone – and there are tons of resources and support available to you. This is not an easy time, but it can be a time of growth and bonding for you and your daughter. Our First Period Kits are a fantastic place to start. Not only do they come with every product your daughter needs to feel ready, but they also come with two free guides: one for you, and one for her. These guides are fantastic conversation starters, and cover tons of helpful information from puberty to periods, and beyond. Plus, if you find that your daughter is still a little uncomfortable discussing these subjects with you, you can rest assured knowing that she’s getting the proper information she’ll need to feel comfortable and confident.
