Recently I read a Facebook post on a mother’s group that spoke essentially about ‘Tips to handling your daughter’s first period’ where the writer is advising mothers on how to ‘prepare’ a kit for your daughter’s first period and to take the community’s help in case the mother is not around. ‘Community’ here being the female teacher in school, because what if? the crimson gates open when your daughter is at school??!!! It made me reminisce my ‘first period’. A painful and embarrassing memory for some!! A crucial event of my life that I remember fondly and the reason behind that is My father!
