Puberty is one of the first signs that your daughter is growing up―and that’s something to be celebrated.
The problem is that for most girls, going through puberty sucks. There are periods, cramps, acne, mood swings, body odor, and the list goes on.
For many, periods are not just an inconvenience—it’s a significant life issue that forces sick days, increases self-consciousness, and causes new emotions.
Many parents decide not to talk to their daughter about puberty, but they miss out on a once in a lifetime opportunity to build a new type of trust in their relationship.
The first step to talking to your daughter about her hormones, physical development, and periods is remembering that this is a celebration, and not something to “get over with.”
