Your daughter's first period: How to educate her,
This time in her life is both exciting and a little scary. It's a great idea to help your daughter prepare for her first period so she's comfortable that she has everything she needs when it finally happens. Most girls will get their first periods around the ages of 12 or 13. But some girls will get their periods as early as 8 or 9 years of age. It is very important for all mothers to give information to her daughter about the mensuration cycle, so that the teens will not hesitate or feel awkward when they start their periods first time.

First period symptoms
The average age for girls to begin menstruating in America is 12-13, but some start as early as 8 or 9. Two signs that are most closely tied to a first period are when a girl needs a real bra and gets pubic and armpit hair. Once your daughter develops these secondary sex characteristics, she's likely to start her period within 3-6 months.
