Mine didn’t do anything because I would have been mortified if they did. :flushed:

I did a special “becoming a women date”. We went out to dinner and then went shopping for what she would need

Chocolates, icecream, bubble bath? Scented candles and her fave snacks and maybe if she has cramps or back aches something for that too:) anything to relax her. I don’t have a daughter but this is the shit I would have wanted for my first time or just really ANY TIME.

Periods are miserable I don’t understand why anyone would want to celebrate that sentence

If you want to do something… keep it private between you and your daughter. It’s SUPER AWKWARD telling EVERYONE that your daughter is now a ‘Women’. Lol

Make a period basket.
Everything she will need sanitary wise and throw in some comfort items. Chocolate, candies, tissues, a diary, heating pad, maybe a warm fuzzy blanket and some advil.

I would have died from embarrassment if anyone made a big deal of it. Tread carefully

My mom let me stay home from school that day, which at ten yrs old was good enough for me. :laughing: (granted this was twenty years ago when getting the ink pen with 5 different colors was enough to please the shit out of kids.)

I had talks with my daughter and prepared her for it and when she did start for the first time we had a low key girls day shopping, lunch and pedicures :heart:
