So, you’ve had the period chat with your daughter, and you want her to be prepared for when her body changes.
The anticipation of getting her first period can make any young girl nervous. There’s no telling when it might happen, so it’s best to prepare them early with a handy period kit.
A pencil case serves as a great period kit, especially if your daughter is embarrassed about getting her period at school.
Put several pads, tampons or period panties in the case – whichever she is more comfortable using. Panty liners, deodorant, wipes, a change of underwear will come in handy too. If your daughter’s school allows it, paracetamol can be a lifesaver if her periods cause pain or discomfort.
