Period Talk: How Can I Talk to My Mom?
Dear BeingGirl Experts, I have trouble talking and telling my mom when I start my period and need pads. Can you help? Alexa --- Dear Alexa, I’ve always thought telling your mom face-to-face is the way to tell her. Casually say "Mom...I got my period. Isn't that great?" Some girls find this difficult so if you can't tell her face-to-face, try writing her a note and leaving it in a place only she will find it or text her. Another way is when you can go shopping with her —casually toss a box of your favorite menstrual protection into the cart. Finally, you can just let her see your soiled panties. She'll get the message. I do know you will be pleased you have let mom know. Your mom can be a big help when it comes to having periods. She remembers what starting your period is like and will want to be a part of this with you. Good luck,
