Periods & Menstruation Resources
It is important for children to learn about the process of menstruation even if it will not happen to their body. A healthy understanding of menstruation helps to dispel any shame or stigma around the topic and fosters empathy and respect. The more a child knows about their body, or the bodies around them, the more prepared they are to make good and healthy choices. This resource list offers resources for parents and youth on topics such as menstruation, healthy hygiene practices, and how to prepare for and manage periods.
