How should you tell your parents that you’ve started your periods?

The easiest thing to do is to talk to your Mum – after all, she’s had periods for many years now. Starting your periods is a sign of good health and shows that you’re developing as you should. So it’s something positive that will make your parents happy!  If you don't feel comfortable talking face-to-face at first, you could send a text or Whatsapp message, until you feel ready to talk more openly.
