What do you do for a 6 year old who has her first period? And, for her mom, who feels overwhelmed and unprepared?
How do you explain to her what’s going on and why her tummy hurts so badly?
“Why does my tummy hurt so much, Mommy? Why”
“When will it stop hurting, Mommy? When?”
Where do you keep the tears, hers from pain and her mom’s from sorrow, as they fall unbidden?
Who has answers that can bring relief to her and provide support for her mom?
Period Wise is working toward creating resources for Moms with girls who enter puberty way too early and experience menarche when their greatest concern should be homework and invites to birthday parties.
If you are the mom of a girl who is experiencing early (precocious) puberty, we’d like to hear from you.
