Talking about puberty?

When I got my first period I was knowing nothing about it and was so scared to see the blood. Yes, normally parents miss to tell their daughters and get them ready for it. My parents were missing this knowledge and because of this, they missed to get me ready for the very important phase of my life.

Every single parent had gone through this phase during their puberty and they know how does it feel? It’s an important work for all the parents to make their child know about this change. Not only body but their thinking pattern too changes, in short, it is physical and emotional changes which indivisible go through.

Most important don’t ignore this thinking you will see what can be done once menstruation cycle starts? Let your child know about this much before. Tell her the changes which her body will go through once period cycle hits her. What should be the first thing which parents should tell their kids related to this?

How do you as a parent going to start making your child ready for this coming phase in their life?

Few tips on how to make your child ready for this phase:

  1. Strike conversation related to the changes in their life. Take them out to their favorite place or sit with them and tell them what is puberty?
  2. How is puberty going to affect them? Tell your child your story of Puberty and how you had dealt with that?
  3. Tell her what the importance of the menstruation cycle?
  4. Let them know about the changes which their body will go through, also tell them about hormonal changes which they will go through. Clear all her doubts and be very patient with her questions.
  5. Give them some book to read and clear their understanding about it. Tell her she is strong enough to deal with it.
  6. Give her all the moral and emotional support.

 It may take a few appointments before you can make her understand completely about this but this approach will defiantly help. Secondly, it will make you more comfortable thinking your kid now understand what is going to happen instead of getting the sudden shock.

Why plan for the second kid?

There are many reasons why we are not planning for a second kid, at the same time we are having some reasons to plan for a second kid too.

I have been raising my son alone with some help from my husband, of course, I understand how difficult is it to raise a toddler and what all a parent goes through but believe me the joy of raising a happy and healthy kid is unmatched with anything else in this world.

Some points why I will intend for a second kid?

  • My son will have a company during his growing age. Yes, I understand the importance of siblings. I being raised up with siblings know how important this relationship is. They taught all I need to know to survive in this world. Wherever I feel or I need I have another set of people whom I can call and depend upon. This is a different kind of love. I don’t want my son to miss this aspect of life and relationship.
  • I understand the importance of sharing, love, and respect. These all I learned while growing with my siblings and not in the school. Of course, we get to learn them in school too but the way we learn them with our siblings is totally different and for the lifetime.
  • Your kid will have an extended family after parents are no longer in the world. Yes, it’s not only about us it’s about them too. My son will have an extended family when I am not around.
  • Life is very unpredictable and so we should always plan in advance. Having a single child is full of risk in either way. If something goes wrong with the kid then parents have no support and vice versa is true too.
  • Of course, finance is one of the reasons we are not planning for a second one but nowadays the government is helping and providing basic support which is important during raising the kid.

So, think before you make your mind for not having the second kid and before its too late to plan one!
