Tara Bruley, founder of Be Prepared, Period.
A site about periods, you say? Is that really necessary? After all, isn’t that what parents and health education classes are for? The truth is that nothing can be further from the truth.
In fact, for girls and their parents, no matter how loving and involved, ‘growing up’ can be a difficult, confusing albeit beautiful phase of life - that is often misunderstood and laced with silent shame. Especially when it comes to reproductive development and periods.
So one intuitive and determined mother, finding herself in the midst of puberty with her own daughter decided to do something about it. She found it conflicting that there was nothing on the market that she could give to her daughter, to mark this special time in her life. So she created one, and she made a vow to go one-step further!
To also educate.
To make resources for parents and girls readily available and easily ac- cessible, as they SHOULD BE. To ease the transition so it becomes one of empowerment rather than shame – of celebration rather than confu- sion.
And most importantly, to spread the word, so that ALL girls and ALL parents could benefit from the truth about menstruation and puberty, which starts with the fact that it is 100% normal and completely natural.
