U by Kotex Tween Mommy Talks #KotexMom

Young girls need the first talk so that they can grow to be mature young ladies who can take care of there body. The first talk becomes many talks as you prepare them for their menstrual cycle period.

Over the past 6 months I have been working as a Brand Ambassador for U by KotexTween. I know that quite a few of you have been following along and I really appreciate all the messages that I have received with your questions about how to have "the talk" with your daughter. I hope that you all learned something and are better prepared or have been made more aware of things to discuss and places to go for that information.

For those of you not aware, I'm a mom of 3 teen daughters. So I have had my share of talks over the past 9 years with each of them. One thing that I have learned over the years is that each talk is different for each young girl. They all have different learning and listening skills so each talk was crafted just for them. One loves details, the other wants just enough to grasp the concept whereas another wants reading materials so that she can read more about it after the talk. No matter what, the girls need to learn about their menstrual cycle and how their body changes from little girl to young woman and then on to being a mother. My girls have all said that they feel like we have a special bond that can't be broken.

Over the past 6 months I have shared with you

It isn't always easy being YOU! Mom Daughter talk






Out off all the post that I crafted, I really have to say that the "Tween first talk on breaking the ice" was my favorite post. I say this because personally that was the first time I went into an all out mommy panic mode. I discussed the importance of being educated on what needs to be said and when.

"My point is for you to educate yourself on puberty changes, read everything available to you and don't go in an all out momma panic mode. You only panic when stressed and I was stressed about them leaving. Don't let stress ruin everything that you have been preparing for. My ice breaker was, "ok girls you are going away for a week and I want to tell you about something that might happen while you are gone." glup. Don't do that. Really, I did that!! The twins told me years later that I freaked them out. They didn't even start for another 3 years. Over those next few years, we had many talks to help them be prepared and not scared."

So be prepared, education yourself (Kotex site and U by Kotex site), check out your resources, ask questions from other moms and know that your daughter needs you to share this information with her. Educate her so that she can grow to be a confident young lady. Remember, someday she will need to share this with her daughter and will look back on the time you shared with her as valuable, treasured moments in her life.

I wrote this review while participating in a Brand Ambassador Campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of U by KotexTween and received products to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
