As your daughter prepares for her first period, keeping track of when her period starts each month is important so that she can always be prepared.
I always want to encourage you to purchase one of my age-appropriate books for your child. Their needs change as they grow through the years and my books will grow with them.
It can take your breath away when your adolescent hits that one big growth spurt! One day, you are taller than them and it seems like just a day later, you are looking eye-to-eye.
It might be confusing for you to separate the development that happens during adolescence, especially the rapid brain development that is happening, from the changes that are so obvious during those few years of puberty.
Parents have their own expectations for what they want their child to learn about puberty and later about sexual maturity. It’s important you research what your school is going to teach your child to make sure it’s compatible with your wishes.
