Explain what's to happen- First help her understand her body is going to go through changes. Let her know about cramps, bloating, craving, PMS, and how to track her cycle if it 24 or every 28 days. Explain a normal flow an abnormal flow because if it abnormal it my need to be addressed by a family doctor. Mom's if you haven't already had the talk about sex now would be the time because if she sexual active it important she know now its possible to get pregnant.
Help her cope- The only way young lady's will have a good transition into woman hood is for us moms to be real, and understanding. Answer all their questions help them find a pad or tampon that is comfortable to their liking maybe even let them stay home for a day or two to adjust to using either product and the change the body going through just be supportive you were where they are once.
Mom's know what works for one doesn't always work for others so buy a few different brand products with your child and let her judge she is the one that has to wear it for the next five days.
