About the campaign

Big Aunty. Mian Bao. Datang Bulan. We’ve all heard these period and pad slang word before. But calling them nice nice names makes it seem like the real names are something to be embarrassed about. Let’s call period by its real name. Don’t confuse girls. Period is period.

So, you have a lovely little girl. Wonderful. However, little girls don’t stay little forever. They’ll grow up and experience changes with their bodies (as you did).

We know how difficult it can be to have an open conversation with your kids about period, so here are some pointers to help you out.

Hi parents. Big Aunty in the house. It’s not easy trying to predict when you should have the period talk with your daughter, but it’s definitely before she gets her period. Here are some good moments to bring up the topic.

Hi everyone. This is Bread here. I have some tips to share on how you can teach your girls about pads.

Hi parents. It’s Bulan. Do you remember how you were first taught about your period? It can be one of the most uncomfortable topics in the galaxy but let me help you with some tips.

Do you know any boys who’ve felt embarrassed to talk about period? Is he grossed out by it? Yes, parents play an important role in educating their daughters about period, but boys need to know too. This is to ensure that they don’t treat period like an unnatural event, and to avoid bullying and teasing towards girls, simply because of a lack of understanding. Come, come, let us share with you.

1. When she starts asking questions
about period

Remember when you were a child? Asking a hundred questions a day? Questions about topics like period shouldn’t be ignored or pushed aside. They should be answered honestly, without sugarcoating it.

2. When you encounter scenes on TV

Another possible moment is during TV or video time – say your favourite drama series. Should there ever be a scene in which a character displays PMS, that’s a good opportunity to bring up period (but perhaps, wait until the episode is over! Don’t want to interrupt the feels).

3. When she’s between 8 - 10 years old

It’s the age right before girls usually start menstruating. It’s a good idea to ease her gradually into her period by introducing various aspects one at a time, in a way that doesn’t overwhelm her. Plus, it’s important to help her understand that there’s nothing embarrassing about period. In fact, both boys and girls should be taught how to be considerate around friends who might be experiencing them.

Oooh but don’t forget yeah. Whenever you choose to teach your child about period, just remember this. The most important thing to keep in mind is your tone and manner when telling them about it. We should be confident and inspire confidence in them. If we sound embarrassed or uncomfortable, the little ones will pick up on these emotions and likely mirror them.

1. Don’t play the waiting game

Don’t wait until she gets her period to teach her about pads. This is because in most instances, getting your period is already something totally new and shocking. It’s your responsibility to help her avoid more shock and confusion by preparing her in advance.

2. Don’t tell her how to use a pad

Remember. If she’s new to period, she will be new to pads. Don’t instruct her and simply let her try it on herself. Show her how much you care by patiently introducing her to the different types of pads out there and how to use each one. This will go a long way in addressing all the concerns she has and will even help her be more confident when she has her period in the future.

3. Don’t just give her the pad you use

The pad that’s right for you may not be right for her. Every girl’s body and preference will differ from one another. It’s important to help her find the one that will make her the most confident and comfortable. Let us help you find the right fit here.

4. Show her that there’s nothing to be
embarrassed about

Yup, girls have all been through it - trying to hand over a pad to a friend in secret or hearing the loud rustle of your pad packaging in the toilet. These are things that used to embarrass women – not anymore. Make sure your daughter knows that there isn’t anything to be shy about.

Remember, parents. Through open communication and simple preparation with the tips above, you can help give your daughter confidence and strength when she goes through her period – and maybe even beyond that.

1. Be Honest

No need to hide the word period, firstly. The way we talk to our little girls about period affects how they perceive it, whether as a natural bodily process, or as a shameful and scary thing. Calling period by its real name helps to eliminate embarrassment and instead fosters acceptance. Share your own funny experiences with her. Show her that you’ve been through it too, and that there’s nothing to be afraid of.

2. Reassure Her

Some girls may be excited to get their period, some may be scared about it, but they all have concerns about it. This is the time when she needs you to calm her fears by addressing any concerns with facts and through listening. Some common concerns include what she can expect to experience, what symptoms are normal and what aren’t.

3. Prepare a Period Kit

No one knows when she’ll get her first period, so to help her feel prepared, make a period kit together. Go shopping with her. Show her all the things she will be needing for her first time. Get a small zippered pouch and put in everything she needs – heat pack, tissue paper, sanitary pads, liner. Teach her what to do when she needs to use it.

4. Help Her Track Her Period

Puberty can be confusing for both of you (it was for me too), but helping her track her period will help her understand herself and her body more. Try using a period app. There are many options out there, but not only do they track your menstruation schedule, it also allows your little girl to note down the emotional and physical patterns she’s experiencing.

See parents? Don’t worry too much. You can do it!

1. It’s a natural event!

When you’re having “the talk” with your boy, it’s important to help him understand that female menstruation is a biologically natural event. Every woman experiences it at some point. It’s not something that is abnormal or disgusting – in fact, having your period means that a woman is healthy! Once they understand this, they won’t think it’s “weird” or “gross”.

2. Teach them to be respectful

Come on. Having period is already so tough – imagine having boys laugh and tease you about it when you experience a leak or when you’re doubled over struggling through cramps! That’s why, as parents, it’s good to teach boys to respect and consider the feelings of girls who are on their period. If boys are taught from young that they need to be understanding towards them, it helps girls on their periods to face it with confidence.

3. A helpful hand goes a long way

For boys, being seen buying pads for their girlfriends could be the worst thing in the world! But parents, you can help make sure that they’re ready to help out the girls in their lives, and in doing so, give them additional strength in facing their period. From young, teach them that they shouldn’t be embarrassed to be seen with pads. With proper education for boys from young, we can help girls face their period with confidence. So, parents, let’s do a part to help boys understand, and in doing so, make sure that period is not a taboo.
