Kotex has recently launched a U by Kotex Tween Line. As the mother of a girl getting ready to enter her tweens this product caught my attention. I know what will be coming soon….the talk….not that talk, but the talk about the Period. Yep, that one which might seem like an easier talk but I still wasn’t sure where to begin. Even though I myself was faced with this life changing moment in elementary school, I still didn’t know what to say to my daughter.
Not only has Kotex introduced this new line but they also have tools to help mother’s like me have “the talk”. You can find articles and tips HERE that will help prepare you. Everything from fun ice breakers for the conversations, to answers for questions that come up, as well as ideas for products your daughter may like.
Thanks to U by Kotex and Modern Mom I was giving the chance to host a party with fellow mothers of tweens, between the ages of 8 and 12. Yes, as young as 8 now a days! They provided us each with boxes of U by Kotex Tween Pads. Not only is the box super fun, the colors are inviting and in a small way they make this change less scary for the girls.
We also pulled up the video below, Disney’s Story of Menstruation and the girls enjoyed that one. You can check it out for yourself HERE.
We also received pamphlets full of information from Conversation Starters to get things rolling to Q&A Advice when those tough questions are asked. We also received some delicious Harry and David Treats to enjoy during our little get together. We had a lot of fun and in the end we were ready to “Talk”.
So why not pick the day, maybe even make your own party of it, and get ready to have “the talk”. Armed with all the resources you will need thanks to U by Kotex Tween!
*I was given these products by Modern Mom, U by Kotex, and Harry & David. I was not compensated in cash for this post and opinions are 100% my own. I didn’t post pictures of the party because of the ages of some of those in attendance.
