Frustrated at the period education you learnt as a teen/tween? You’re not alone! Many adult menstruators wish they received more menstrual cycle education at school and from their parents growing up. If you were anything like me it was insert a tampon, don’t let other people you know you have your period…

Today it’s completely different and with lots of menstrual education available online how can we better educate and support our young to-be or newly bleeding menstruators?

This is one of the most common questions I’m asked as a leading menstrual educator – how can we share this information with teens and tweens? Re-writing the once menstrual education we may have had. To openly explore this topic I’m joined my dear friend, mother, high school teacher and health educator Belinda Norton. Get ready it’s full of AMAZING Teen and Tween insights.
