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?

First Moon Circle – period power workshop for girls

first moon circles

First Moon Circles are a once in a lifetime empowering menstrual education and celebration for girls aged 9-12. Children can learn about puberty and periods in a nurturing circle experience so they feel really prepared, informed, positive and excited to have their first periods, at their menarche rite of passage. We also have a special mother-daughter celebration to role model to children that they can talk openly about the changes they’re going through, so they don’t feel menstrual shame or awkwardness.

The way we experience our First Moon (first period) shapes our beliefs about our own worth, power and value as a cyclical being, which stays with us forever. Your child will love this beautiful, magical 3 hour circle where they can learn all about how they can look after themself as they grows up.

Covering self-care, and teaching children how to get the best out of their superpowers as they begins their menstrual cycle, First Moon Circles are doing period education differently. Our circles are proving a fun and enjoyable way for girls and children who have or will have periods to learn, play, and feel supported at a pivotal time in their lives.

at their first moon circle your child will learn:​

What periods are and what happens during the whole menstrual cycle (because there is so much more to it than just managing blood!)

The signs and stages of puberty so she can work out when her first period may come

Period care: product options, play and practice so when she needs to choose and use a product, she’s done it before

An overview of menstrual cycle self-care so she can nurture herself and be nurtured as her energy changes from ovulation to menstruation.

Receiving mother’s wisdom and well-wishes so she knows its not just she who bleeds, and that she has a village of people to support her through the process.

Cycle Syncing To Powerfully Create, Grow and Lead in Business

Your menstrual cycle is your business bestie if you know how to work with it, and get the best out of your cyclic ebbs and flows. If you’ve ever paid attention to your cycle before you’ll know there are times when your energy and confidence is comes easily, but then other times when your motivation plummets and your inner critic gate crashes the party, throwing you into a tailspin. When you understand and can predict how your creativity, mindset, and focus changes across your cycle you can work with your cycle not against it. In this episode of Wild Flow Podcast I’m sharing how to sync your menstrual cycle with your business

Intuition: When to Say No and Love Yourself First

Did you know that on average, Australian females experience between 450-500 periods in her lifetime, with the average cycle spanning between 21-35 days, and the average bleed lasting between 2-7 days?

Once we begin menstruating (at menarche – pronounced “men-ar-kee”) which occurs anywhere these days between roughly the ages of 8-15, and commonly around ages 12-13, we begin our monthly bleed (menstrual cycle) until we reach menopause which occurs approximately at the age of 50 (although again, this can occur much earlier or later as it is do individual).

After menarche our periods will be irregular for most of our teen years until the rhythm is established and our hormones settle into their natural, beautiful cycle. You might notice that some months you bleed for longer, or more heavily than other times, or that your cycle isn’t the same length each time. This is all ok – everyone’s cycle is different.

The Cyclic Nature of Female ADHD

ADHD is becoming more and more understood as a neurodivergence, however the link between ADHD and the menstrual cycle is still misunderstood by many. Because ADHD presents differently in females to males, girls are often mis-diagnosed, because of the ways that female  hormones and the menstrual cycle affects ADHD. 

I’m so thankful to today’s guest Adele Wimsett, Hormone Health expert, for sharing her personal journey of discovering her ADHD, and for educating us so we can have more awareness for ourselves and people around us.
