Being a teenager or a tween is a bittersweet time in life. While not a full fledged adult, you’re old enough to start making the big decisions in life. You’ll also start to learn key things about yourself that will become integrated into your daily life, whether you’re ready or not. For instance, when it comes to teenage girls they won’t have it easy. As moms we can relate and know already what curve balls they’ll be thrown before it even happens. For example: acne, moody friends, exclusion from groups of friends that were previously close, and of course, puberty.
Puberty is the main topic of discussion today, and if you’re a mom following along, then you know firsthand the challenges it brings to what is already a stressful time in life for young women. When I was going through puberty, all those years ago, it was hard even with a mom of my own to help me through my first monthly cycle. The truth is, even though we’ve all gone through it and continue to experience it, we don’t always have the best tools needed to understand and help others. Periods have always been a rather taboo subject, even between women. Even now, when times have changed so drastically and women are more open about things like sexuality, gender roles, etc. monthly cycles are still a matter of secrecy.
