- Let them know what to expect. Have a nice talk with your daughter to let her know what to expect when their period is nearing. There are signs (the cramping and such) she can look out for. Once she does get her period, she can track it each month to estimate its arrival and be prepared.
- Pack an Emergency Kit! You never know when your period will show up. Tracking can give you a good idea, but it's just an estimate. That's why it is best to be prepared with products. Ry has a pencil case and many other girls carry cosmetics cases, so I let her pick out one at the store. It's inconspicuous and so are the pads from U by Kotex. I put a few in there along with some lip gloss and other items I knew she would enjoy and put them in the pouch of her bookbag. This way it is there just in case. It can be her emergency kit!
- Let her know you are there. Moms and daughters have a special bond. I love letting my daughter known I am there for her when she needs to talk. Period talks are so important and I want her to not only feel comfortable asking questions, but to also be ready when the time comes.
- Show her helpful products! Another thing I remember worring about as a tween, when wearing a pad, if others could tell. The ones we had back then felt like a diaper because they were so HUGE! I remember them rubbing my legs to the point of being sore, too. It was horrible! I would hate for Rylee to have an experience like this and thankfully she doesn't have to. The U by Kotex pads are small and easily fit into her emergency kit, too!
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.
