Last month, I wrote about Getting the Puberty Conversation Started with Your Daughter and shared some tips on how to open the line of communication with your teenager, and where to obtain additional information by visiting Always changing website sponsored by P&G, the experts in feminine care with Always & Tampax. For this article, I will be talking about a website just for girls, BeingGirl.com.
When I was a girl back in the early 80’s, I didn’t have many resources to help answer questions about periods, relationships, make-up, and more. We had a few classes on puberty with my teacher in 6th grade and a few more in gym classes when I was in middle and high school. There were some books on the subject, but they were more intended for parents. Of course, I talked it out with my friends, but some answers looked more like myths and some of them had no clue either. And yes, I did turn to my mother for her feedback and knowledge, but sometimes I just wanted to find out more on puberty. The era before the internet and home computers!
Nowadays, girls are lucky to be able to also search the net to find answers on puberty, but they need to find reliable sites to help them. BeingGirl.com is one of them! I was totally amazed on all the information that is available to them and wish I had heard of the site when my daughter was looking for additional answers on puberty. Girls can read compelling articles on periods, emotional well being, fitness and nutrition, self esteem, beauty and fashion, dating, relationships, and more! There is even a section on asking an expert a question and it will be answered on the site, videos to view, and games to play. This site is only dedicated to them, to being a girl!

I found this video on the BeingGirl website on “Talking to your mom about puberty” and wanted to share it with you:
We all know it’s not necessarily easy to open up the line of communication about puberty with our daughters. Some might stop talking when you bring up the subject, while others would rather chat with their friends about it. Ideally, finding that perfect time where the two of you are receptive, like at bedtime or after spending a daughter and mother day shopping or visiting a museum, are special moments to look for to have one of many “talks” on being a girl. A perfect time to mention she can find more answers to any questions she might have on a site just for her, BeingGirl.com. She might be more lenient to have a look and discuss what she read with you after, and get the conversation started…..
Were you comfortable talking to your mother about puberty?
