Growing up

My daughter needed a bra badly and she smelled and I saw some hair growing in various places. I read her this article at first she was like what.Before we read this she told me she did not need a bra nor deodorant or a pad and she would not shave.She is in 5th grade I am homeschooling.When I did the laundry one day I found a bloody stain on her underwear I realized she started puberty I read this article and now she's wearing her bra shaving and wearing deodorant and pads.It was stressful.But this article helped a lot Thanks

A much better book than “it’s perfectly normal”

I’m so glad that I got this book for my daughter. It covers what she needs to know about puberty, such as what bra to wear, her first period, etc. It did mention sexual harassment, but that’s not a bad thing. It’s actually relevant to know about sexual harassment at her age, which is pretty scary, but true. If you’re not okay with that, the 1996 edition (old edition) of the book doesn’t mention sexual harassment. But, other than that, I can’t see anything that would be considered wrong with this book. Maybe the fact it didn’t mention homosexuality and assumed readers were heterosexual, but I’m okay with that, since my daughter already knows about gays and lesbians. It’s a good book for girls entering puberty.
