It has been back to school for my teen for a few weeks now. Before she geared up to go I made sure we sat down and had a talk about her having to deal with her period at school. Last year during school the immature boys she went to school with made fun of her when they saw what she carried in her backpack. She let things roll off her back but I could tell it bothered her, so this year I made sure that instead of just throwing what she needed in her backpack that she had her little “cosmetic” bag to put her things in. I have also made sure to share my story about when I first started my period at school and was wearing a white skirt. Because of that story she is prepared with an extra pair of shorts as well as having U by Kotex products on her at all times, and to stay away from white when her period is due.

The last thing I want for her during this time is to deal with being embarrassed or humiliated. I feel that by giving her advice, information and support that she is prepared as she heads to school each and every day. Having these talks with her over the last few months has not only helped her but has created a strong bond between the two of us, which makes us both very happy! And just knowing that she is armed with everything she needs makes me as her mother more relaxed that everything will be just fine.

I have also made sure that if she has any questions that I can’t answer that she should check out the Kotex website as I do not want her to be left feeling embarrassed or confused. I am pretty confident that she has been dealing with the changes with her body in a great way, dealing with everything as only a moody teen can ;)

Speaking of moodiness stay tuned next month when I will share information on Monthly Maintenance and how to handle your daughter’s moodiness. And please check out the Hello Period page if you or your daughter has any questions right now.

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.
