They grow up soooo fast...
Just the other day, my just-turned 11 year old 5th grader had a program in school presented by the Robert Crown Center for Health Education. I think it's excellent that schools include workshops that give girls information and suggestions on how to cope during these nuanced times. Young girls often feel a little uncertain about the changes going on in their bodies and can feel a little self conscious.
I remember how my friends and I used to hide a tampon or pad up our sleeve or stashed it in a pencil case during those times of the month...not really the best way at times ;/ Just my luck to have it fail me at the most inopportune time... like when the boy I had a crush on was around!
Now at least I can have my daughter confident that she'll never have to endure these vagaries of childhood and enjoy more peace of mind. Perhaps Robert Crown Centers will share our practical solution with other school girls so they can enjoy the benefits, too.
What did you do to carry your fem hygiene products when you were in school?
How did that work out for you?
