Today’s society and dynamic leaves parents busier than ever. We can easily put our children on the back burner when it comes time to talk personal conversations. If you start at a young age setting a time aside each week, then it will be so much easier to keep the weekly conversations going with your child.
As my oldest daughter is getting older, I want more than ever to make sure the lines of communication are always open. I know, I may not be the first person that she will always come to talk to…but I hope I will be most of the time. I want to be there for her always. Over the next few years, I know there will be lots of questions about the changing body. For one, I want to be prepared and be able to answer all the questions.
Over the past few months, I have been using the U by Kotex website. There will be a time when a period may pop up and it could be during the day at school, just like mine did… sigh! There was no preparation when I was growing up, so I told the teacher to call my mom. I was really sick on my stomach. I did not know what else to do unfortunately. It will be different for my girls.
U by Kotex has a place dedicated for girls to share about their first period experience. This will allow girls to know what to expect and see how other girls their age are feeling about the whole experience. There are articles written on what to expect as well.
It is suggested to go ahead and purchase a small and cute bag that your daughter can keep in their book bag or locker. Fill the bag with pads such as the U by Kotex Tween pads so they will be prepared just in case the period decides to come when they are at school.
It is so hard to believe that I am reaching this time in my parenting journey. Time just seems to be going by so fast but I do not want to sit in denial and not be prepared. I am thankful for such a great resource and hopefully this will all go over well.
I wrote this review while participating in a Brand Ambassador Campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of U by Kotex Tween and received products to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
