Happy Anniversary to #PeriodTalk
Upon hearing it for the first time, many people wonder, “What is #PeriodTalk and why should I attend?” Our friends at Feby.com answer this question beautifully in a post about their #PeriodTalk experiences.
“#PeriodTalk is significant on many levels. It provides a place for girls, parents, educators, small businesses and organizations and the general public to discuss anything related to menstrual health and wellbeing. Unlike almost all other forums #PeriodTalk is just that – talk about periods. The focus is not sexual education but specifically menstrual education and that is important when you consider how young girls are getting their first periods now, some as early as 7 or 8 years old. They are too young to need to know about such things as birth control options but rather should be taught about their changing bodies and how to care for it in the best possible manner and to approach it with a positive attitude without embarrassment.” To read the full blog post, click here.
