What you should do is call a female family member or a girl who has started, tell your sister to calm down, its nothing to worry about, its normal. Have her take a bath, dry off, put on some clean clothes, sit on the toilet and then have her fold toilet paper into a square and have her put it in her panties. dont use tampons, becuase shes not ready for them and by the way, 9 years old to15 years old is in the normal range. in the past 100 years, this stuff has been happening earlier and its nothing to worry about.
