Today I wanted to just talk about puberty.
Boys, now is your chance to leave. Same with if you’re under 9 or haven’t started puberty yet.
Okay! When I started puberty I has SO many questions! Luckily I had many people to ask, who kindly gave me answers. I wanted to give other girls the same opportunities. I’ll do a few of these as a series!
This weeks topic is breasts. Before you ask any questions I have a few things to just talk about for you.
- Any age above 9 is an OKAY time to get breasts. Every girl gets them at different rates.
- All women naturally get breasts so you don’t need to be embarrassed at all.
- Ask a mom if you can about getting a bra once you get a breasts. If you can’t talk to at mom, talk to an aunt, female school counselor, or a women teacher.
- If you are feeling scared or embarrassed about having breasts, the advice I’d give is to get a bra. They help to support you and make you more comfortable while exercising.
This was something I had to learn myself. Before you ask your mom (or women adult/caregiver) for a new bra, try it out! Wait a 2 weeks. If it REALLY hurts after 2 weeks discuss getting another one.
