If your teen or preteen has started their period and they aren't happy about it, or if they are preparing to start their period and it could happen at any time, there are some things you can do to make light of the situation. You can cheer them up and bring some humor so they don't feel so embarrassed about this change that their body is making and about something that is going to be a monthly occurrence in their life. Here are some of the things you can do for them.
PMS Survival Kit Gift
You can purchase a PMS survival kit as a fun and comical gift for your teen and to help provide them with some things that they will need and enjoy. Some ideal options for this would be:
You can buy a basket already made from a company like Around the Clock Gifts, or you can buy one and put some more items into it so it's more customized.
New Period Underwear
Leaks can happen, so you want to talk with your teen about not wearing their good underwear while they are on the period, or possibly having specific period underwear. This gives the two of you a chance to shop, and some good choices for this would be underwear that is completely black or dark gray. This way leaks won't show if there is an emergency or problem, and they get to get something new.
There are many books both comical and more serious about this change in a young girl's life. If you think that your teen would like to read more about the cycle and process or anatomy of a period, or if they would like to read a funny joke book about crazy things people have done while they are on their period, this is a great option. This could be something to brighten their day if their hormones are making them feel sad.
There are a lot of things that are going on in your teen's life, and sometimes with hormones it can be difficult for them to handle all of their emotions. You can help make the situation something that you are both prepared for and that can be funny in a small way by giving them things to help them through it.
My name is Natalie Potter and I hope you enjoy my website. I would like to tell you a little about myself. I have spent the past couple of years traveling the world. There are so many wonderful people who have allowed me to stay with them, who have shown splendid hospitality and who have shown me how to enjoy the sights and sounds of their homelands. Now that I will be spending time at home, I have decided to return the favor by reaching out to my international friends. This has offered me the opportunity to improve my hospitality and my ability to entertain guests. Therefore, I have decided to create a blog focused on entertainment and hospitality.
