DD1 has ASD/speech delay and DD2 has receptive language impairment. Therefore we have been careful in what we have said to them in the past as they take things VERY literally...
However they are now getting to be big girls and I need to chat to them about periods etc. PLUS they have a blood phobia and anxiety....so......any suggestions you may have would be great.
They also need to have where did I come from chat. They know they came from my belly but got cut out due to them being in distress. They emphatically do not want to talk about babies coming out from between your legs...see where I am coming from...
I have bought the Secret Girls Business books but not sure that's the best way to begin and was wondering if anyone had some tips.
For the record my mum left it to the schools I went to discuss all this so there was no motherly advice. Personally I thought the schools I went to did a great job (in the US they talk about it from age 7-8 etc about periods) so when I returned to Oz I was very well informed at age 12.
Any help would be appreciated.
