For our young girls, puberty can sound scary and gross. They know their bodies are about to change, but they don’t know how or when exactly. The scariest part is WHEN will they start their period? Some girls can get their periods as young as 8 and as late as 16, and in our culture the average age is 12.
So, how do you know when your daughter will get her period? Well, we can never be sure exactly, and there is no way of speeding it up or slowing it down. However, we can get a good idea that it’s not far away by other signs. Note, there is no right or wrong order to this, each girl is different.
In this episode we talk about seven signs to look out for which might indicate that your daughter will start her period soon.
