Preparing and Celebrating Puberty and Periods with your Child

How to support your children through puberty and menarche by Charlotte Pointeaux

How do you help your daughter love her period? You’ve been learning about your menstrual cycle and how to attune to its changing daily strengths, vulnerabilities, and self-care needs – and it’s been life changing to finally learn what you should have learnt as a child. So imagine how powerful it would be for our children to learn this knowledge and wisdom now – rather than having to figure it all out after many years of being disconnected to their body, their cycle and therefore, themselves. If you’d love to share what you now know with your child or any other child for that matter but aren’t sure of when or how to start, I’d love to give you some ideas to help you do that confidently in a way that feels gentle, age-appropriate, and empowering for you and your child.

Many mothers have traditionally thought that children aren’t ready to learn about their body, how it changes, what menstruation is, or anything else associated with puberty until they have their first period but when we leave “the talk” until this time, children already have a lot of feelings, thoughts and confusion about what’s been happening to their body and sense of selves for a while, and they question what these changes mean about them if they are left in the dark.

Children in the playground talk and share information that’s usually incomplete or inaccurate, leaving children to piece the story together themselves. Schools deliver education that’s most often squashed down in one or two hours total to combine information on what periods are and how to manage blood, anatomy and how reproduction works which sends children the message that having periods means that falling pregnant is something to fear, and that when they begin their periods, they’re ready to have sex, which is not the case at all from a developmental point of view.

When talking about periods is so uncomfortable, it continues the menstrual taboo that we have been victims of for millennia. So how do we cultivate a period positive culture?

Aware Parenting, Menarche Celebrations and Inner Child Healing with Joss Goulden

womb wisdom, aware parenting, menarche celebration, inner child healing

In today’s new episode of Wild Flow Podcast we’re talking aware parenting, menarche celebrations and inner child healing with Joss Goulden. I absolutely love this conversation with Joss. She shares so much wisdom that is really suitable for parents but also people who are likely to be parents in the future. Joss invites us to let go of guilt and shame when we don’t need to hold it, and instead, to bring so much compassion to ourselves as we learn to be the parents that our children need us to be and to flow with the changes as our children develop and move into new stages of life and surprises. 

We talked about:

What Aware Parenting is and how Joss found it, and why its different to other parenting frameworks,

How we can be with ourselves and our feelings as we parent developing children, and are triggered by our children’s feelings and behaviours,

How to honour our changing capacity for listening to feelings and doing life as our energy and resources wax and wane.

Being with what comes up for us in our Inner Spring of the menstrual cycle, which is a mirror of the Maiden time of our lives, as well as the Inner Summer, which is a reflection of the Mother season of life, and how our children and menstrual cycle can show us where their is room for healing and growth. 

How Joss held a beautiful Menarche celebration for her daughter when she had her first period, and how she educated and supported both of her children through puberty. 

What Joss believes children should know beyond just the facts of life, so that they can become their most wise, joyful, connected, self aware and compassionate young people they can be.

Whether you have children now or not this is a really great listen as we’re talking about reparenting ourselves and inner child healing as well as supporting children through puberty adolescence and their rites of passages.

How I grow my business in the busy season of motherhood (and 3 mistakes to avoid)

I’m asked all the time how I do it: how do I grow my business, whilst being a present mama of three young kids. How did I start my business and get to this spacious, sustainable place I’m at now, whilst only working 3 days and prioritising my health and wellbeing?

When I was asked this question again yesterday, I thought to myself hang on, I would love to address this really in-depth, to share what’s helped me, and the 3 major mistakes women get caught up in when trying to cultivate a business that serves them too. So I made a video for you.

Inside the video is what I wish for all women to know: whether you are a mum yourself (or intend to be), whether you just want to leave behind the hustle and embed a deep cyclical sustainable way of working, whether you’re going through big changes in life that are urging you to make big changes and you’re not sure how to move towards what you want, this is for you.

I might be in the very busy ‘Mother’ season of life but I am not martyring myself to the traditional gendered role of a Mother (read: being all things, to all people, at all times). This season of life, which for me has included growing three humans and a business, has taught me if nothing else….

That I don’t want to do things the same way anyone else is.

Because my measure of success is very different to anyone else’s.

And so it should be.

There are 3 key mistakes I see people making when they want to grow a business that nourishes, supports and sustains them.

When growing a successful, soulful, sustainable business it’s so important you focus on avoiding these 3 key mistakes, so I’m sharing what these are and how you can avoid them in this video.

I would LOVE you to have a watch because I know this is going to help you so much.

Circles As Ancient Medicine For Modern Times with Mitlé Southey

circles as ancient medicine for modern times with mitle Southey on wild flow podcast

It’s safe to say that sacred women’s circles are making a big come back. No longer lost ancient forms of gathering in community, circles are now becoming increasingly available around the world as an opportunity to gather with shared intention, possibly to meet new friends, devote time to spiritual practice, to experience particular ceremony. Whatever happens and whoever you meet, you are sure to come home to yourself. The way of the circle offers us a very different form of connection and community in which we can come to understand ourselves and each other- and to find the magick and medicine we need at the time. If you’re curious about attending womens circles, want to learn how to hold a sacred circle or love holding sacred space this is for you.

Wise Power: How Your Menstrual Cycle Prepares You For Menopause with Red School

Wise Power book interview with Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer on Wild Flow Podcast

Your menstrual cycle is teaching you how to work with your inner power, ready to become a wise woman at menopause. The wise women founders of Red School Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer have released their cutting edge book Wise Power: Discover the Liberating Power of Menopause to Awaken Authority, Purpose and Belonging. I’m THRILLED to have had the opportunity to chat with the authors and Menstruality leaders about how we can practice menstrual cycle awareness as a lifestyle that ultimately builds our self-trust, resilience, and capacity for presence, so that when the time comes, we can surrender, die and be reborn through the “mother of all initiations” that is Menopause.
