Over the last, almost six months, I have had the pleasure of being one of the U by Kotex Tween Mom Ambassadors. Throughout the program I have shared tips, stories and much more on how to prepare yourself and your tween/teen as she enters into womanhood.
As a mom of a 7 year old, I know the years will be upon us quicker than I am prepared for. I want her to stay my baby forever, but she can’t and that means I have to do my part to make sure she is fully prepared for everything life has to throw at her. Okay, so I can’t prepare her for everything but I can do my part to make sure she is as prepared as possible when she starts her period.
Being a Kotex Mom Ambassador has helped me, not only have access to information as a parent to use when talking with my daughter, but also information for my daughter (and her friends) in those moments she just wants some time to learn by herself.
Before starting the Kotex Moms campaign I knew I was getting ready to enter in to the years where the talks would become a little more serious. I am so glad I had the chance to be a part of the ambassadorship because I feel, even though I knew all about periods, this helped prepare me, even more, on how to deal with the issues when they become a part of my daughters life. It’s easy to deal with my issues, but it’s going to be a new ballgame when it is her going through it and I definitely think being a Kotex Mom helped prepare me for the future.
Whether it’s with my daughter, her friends, my little sisters, at some point I am going to talk to a young girl about her period. I want to be sure I am prepared with information, because when that time comes if I am not prepared how can I help her be. The last thing my daughter will need during the changes life will bring, is a mom who is nervous to talk about something because she wasn’t prepared.
I don’t think I’ll ever be ready for her to grow up but she will. Which means I have to be ready to be there for her in whatever capacity she wants me to, so the transitions life brings can be moved through with ease. I see a lot of talks in my future but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I wrote this review while participating in a Brand Ambassador Campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of U by Kotex Tween and received products to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
