For parents: the first period
This is a time when a young girl goes through a lot of changes, both emotional and physical. Because of all these changes, it can be a very stressful time, not just for your daughter but for the rest of the family as well. When a girl first experiences her menstrual cycle, it usually comes with a feeling of fear, often due to a lack of information. If your daughter is prepared for her first period, the experience will be much more positive. So, the best time to share this information is definitely before she gets her first period. Your daughter needs to understand that menstrual bleeding is a very normal process for a young woman to go through.
