How do I tell my mom I got my period?
It's a funny moment when you get your first
period. You can feel a bunch of different emotions. Some girls might be thrilled
that their period has finally arrived. Others might be a little weirded out by it.
And still other girls might take it completely in stride, deal with it, and go on
like nothing happened.
Whichever girl you are, it's important to tell your mom. It'll be easier to get
the supplies you need.
Just remember that she was once your age, getting her first period, so she knows this
territory well. She also knew the day would come when you would have your first period
and might already have supplies on hand. So you can say something like "Mom,
I've gotten my period, can you help me with supplies?"
