9 year old daughter had her first period today.

she came to me and told me that her underwear had blood on it. My wife isnt here yet and wont be returning untill later tonight. But i found this weird because she s only 9, so i called the doctors and the first thing he asked was if she was over weight. and i told him no. and he told me it was young but it s still ok. Im confused on what to do untill my wife gets home. I called her a few times but that was before my daughter told me, and my wife s been busy lately. I ll try again later but for now what should i do?

awww. :) ok first go to your wife's stash of items..(you know what i mean) and find some pads. There should be some.. Take it and tell her how to put it on. You can just get her a new pair of underwear and stick it on them and give it to her. Please dont panic. If you're paniced then she will to. *Just act like you know what your doing* :] Tell her it's ok and there's nothing wrong with it. Hot tea works best. If she asks you questions when you explain to her what is happening answer them to your best ability. NO WORRIES. I feel bad for kids that start there periods that early, but if you help her through her first one she'll get the hang of it. Dont give her tampons, thats a whole nother story. When you get a chance to speak with your wife, give your daughter the phone, maybe she'll be driving home and they can both talk about it. If she says her stomach hurts let her lay down, like someone else said, treat her like its her own day. You dont have to talk about it so much if she doesnt say anything much about it. Let her talk to her mom when she gets home. If she has older sisters, let her talk to them. Dont freak out. If youre wife is getting home later today, im guessing its not hours away. Just let her know she has to keep clean during these days. It's going to be alot to keep up with for her, but help her, and check in on her. I hoped i helped

I agree you should do the exact same thing. Explain it as best as you can. It's extremely hard to start at an early age. I started when I was age and developed way before any of the other girls and my sister started when she was 9 and she is now 14 and is built like a woman. Just be there as much as you can for her it will definitly help. But it's not un normal to start at an early age, my and my sister were both healthy kids and not over weight we just happened to start young. Now a days I've been hearing it happen alot more.
