Your daughter has just had her first rules! For her, it is an important moment made of anguish, pride and pain at a time. For many, it is certainly panic and for others embarrassing.
For the majority, it is a “woman business”. But how do we handle it when we're a solo dad? How can I explain to my 12-year-old daughter that she became a woman? Where to find towels or tampons? What does she say to use first with the arrival of her rules? What do we give to relieve his pain in the belly? Send it to school or not?
Anyway, hell! At this precise moment, the fear of feeling a dad not up to the height overwhelmed us.
