bo-zephyr- no, actually! It could be scary, I guess-blood coming out is usually scary. But it's a lot like discharge, except you use pads and tampons, and it looks different.

Shelby- you do not want to know. Trust me. When I found out, I got really freaked out and disgusted.

Britt- I keep a calendar, and mark 1 or 2 letters on each day: H for heavy, M for medium, L for light, and N for none.

Alexa- You only have your first kiss once! Save it for someone special! You can ask your friends not to talk about it too much so you won't feel left out!

Anny- Congrats! It's totally normal! Newer leaks are a brighter red, and older ones are a darker red. So that could explain it!

2 Olivia you are 10. ask your mom if you can go but when he asks just say "cool! i'll ask my mom!"

3 vallari, talk to your doctor.

4 if you feel you need a padded bra ask. if yours is fine change the subject.

5 LR, just ask to go shopping and when you're passing the bras say " hey mom, I think I need a bra can we look?"

6 Natalie talk to a doctor!

7 periods aren't scary. they are just new.

8 Shelby ask your mom

9 just change the subject. every girl grows at a different pace.

10 worried, your mom is going to be having them to. I know its weird and embaressing but your moms going through it to. think about being the only girl. you would want your own room to.

11 walk away when they leave talk to them.

12 both Emma

13 every girl grows at a different pace. soon you will stop and the others will be in B and C as well.

14 Brit make a calendar to mark it.

Don't worry about it! Just get plenty of sleep. Don't worry if you stay 5'2 forever because plenty of people are short. Generally girls stop growing two years after their period

Wow Jemma, that's a lot of questions in one day!
@Taia
I'm 12 and my parents still don't allow me to wear make up yet. In my opinion, 11 is a bit of a young age to start wearing makeup but if you're allowed to, u can dab on some mascara and lip gloss. I'm allowed to wear lip gloss and some concealer for a big pimple or acne. =) hope I helped!

July 17, 2013 at 12:26 PM  
Anonymous Bluetiful Blossom said...

@Vallari
Well for one thing you're taller than me! Sometimes you're just born that way especially if your family is short. Eat lots of veggies, fruit and milk and lots of healthy food. Who knows, maybe you'll have a growth spurt. I know lots of people who are short. I just want u to know it's ok if you're short. Hope I helped! =)

July 17, 2013 at 12:32 PM  
Anonymous Bluetiful Blossom said...

@NoPads
The simplest answer is to get padded bra's. But don't worry, at your age I didn't wear padded bra's either. Just sports bra's with no pads. If u don't need them then u simply don't need to get padded bras no matter what others think. You will get them eventually so no worries. Hope I helped! =)

@LR
When your at the mall or the store just simply ask your mom if you're ready for a bra. Justice has good starter bra's like without pads or the cup shape. Don't worry. Once u get over it you never have to ask again. Good luck! =)

U could say "Better early than never" I personally applaud u. It's the first step in becoming a woman. It doesn't matter what others say. Your going at your own pace and they're going at theirs. Hope I helped! =)

Okay, I'll try to answer all of them.

Taia- Well, that's for your parents to decide. Ask them if it's okay to wear makeup.

Olivia- Hmm that's a hard question. Before dinner tell your parents he may ask you out at the table, and ask if it will be okay to say yes or no. If they say no, tell him (if he does ask) "Sorry I'm not allowed to date yet," That's all.

Vallari- I think that 5'2" is average height. But if you want to grow taller, eat healthy, drink lots of milk, and be active!

No Pads- Just say to your mom that you want padded bras and ask her if you two can buy some.

LR- Say this:
You: Can we go shopping later?
Mom: Sure, for what?
You: Well, I think I now need padded bras, so I want to get some.
Mom: Okay then!
If you are still nervous, text her when she's out shopping or email her so you don't need to say it face to face.

Natalie- I think your friend should talk to her mom about it and maybe see a doctor if it's worrying both of you.

Bo-Zephyr- No they aren't scary. Just remember all girls had, have, or will have it, so there's nothing to worry about.

Shelby- Kids your age shouldn't know yet in my opinion. It's really gross and disgusting.

Kenli- The choice of a bra is up to you. If you feel more comfortable with them, wear them. You should tell people that are saying that "Thanks for the advice, but I'm more comfortable with a bra" or something like that.

Worried- Tell your mom about how you have periods, so you want to have your own room. Your mom may just kick him out of that room and put you in!

LR- Try not to be so jealous. If you see girls touching him, just look away.

Emma- That's very difficult, so let your emotions decide. Are you happy because you won't have to deal with the avoiding? Or are you sad because your crush is going to a different school? You should at least try to stay positive and say goodbye before he leaves.

B.B.T.E.-There actually is no average size. Everyone has different sizes, some may be smaller and others my be bigger, it depends on how fast or slow your body works. For now, just be confident. Soon everyone's breasts won't be that far off!

Britt- You use a calendar. Mark the days that you have your period, and then predict when your next period will be (periods are usually every month).

Paniz- When you're the new girl, try to make friends! Be very outgoing, and smile and wave to everyone. You'll fit right in!

Alexa- Just because your friends already had theirs, it doesn't mean you need to have yours now! It may take time to find the right guy to have your first kiss with. Just remember, some high school kids haven't even had their first kiss yet!

Anny- That's normal. The red is some of your blood, which is what you are supposed to get. Don't worry.

I HOPE I HELPED EVERYONE! AND THANK YOU JEMMA FOR THE NEW POST!!!!!!! :) :) :)

OK so I'm going to 9th grade on septemeber n I'm 5'2...the same height as u so don't worry being short is better than being to tall cuz if your short u can wear high heels n not look like a giant n some other ppl might only b about an inch or to taller than u so they wont make fun of u n there won't b that big of a height difference so yeah don't worry

When u first get your period u can't really keep track of it because when u first get it it won't come every 28 says like it should because it takes time for your body to adjust so it takes a while maybe by like your 8th period or do it will start to n normal but all I can say is that when u first her it it can come anywhere btwn about 23-30 days so just b ready when u your about 22 days passed so don't wear light colored shorts skirts pants etc.

@Taia, 11
Personally, I think you are too young. Wearing make up, besides lip glosses, while you're young can mess up your skin and make you look old really early.

@Olivia, 10
If you really like him, go for it!

@Vallari,
You can't really do anything. Don't worry you're still young and growing!

@No Pads, 11
Don't worry! You dont have to wear a padded bra. If you truly feel left out, ask your mom to buy you one, but make sure you're ready for it! ;)

@LR, 10
First off, just because you started puberty, that doesn't mean that you need a padded bra. Make sure you're ready for a bra and ask you're mom for one. If you're just starting, you may need a training or sports bra, first.

@Natalie, 10
I think that you are a nice friend to be worried as well! If it really scares you girls, talk to a trusted adult and set up an appointment with a doctor.

@bo-zephyr, 9-10
Periods can be scary to some at first but once you're used to them it'll be fine! ;)

@Shelby, 9
I don't think that 9 year olds should know. Sex is for the adult world. Don't worry, it's gross anyway!

@Kenli,11
If you wear a bra and you feel like you need it, who cares what they think?! They're not the ones wearing it, you are! If bras make you feel comfortable then you go girl! ;)

@Worried, 10
Hopefully, you get the room! But if not, at least it will just be you and your mom when toy have your periods! After all, its a girl thing! ;)

@LR, 10
There really isn't anything that you can do. You told him how you feel so if he likes you, maybe he'll ask you out!

@Emma, 12
I can't tell you how to feel but maybe he's just a little embarrassed. Give him some time. Try not to rush him. Continue to behave around him the same way you did before this situation.

@B.B.T.E, 12
Don't worry! There is no average! I'm positive that most of those girls wish that their boobs were just as big as yours. Embrace your difference! Like Tyra Banks always says about her models, its those differences that make a girl beautiful!

@Britt, 12
I always mark on my calendar the days I have my period; beginning on the day it starts and ending on the day it ends. Then you can count 28 days, starting on the day after your period ends. The 28th day is the day you start your next period. If you just started having periods, your cycle may not be normal yet but eventually, it will be.

@Paniz, 10
Its always scary to be the new girl. Just be yourself! Honestly, most people tend to try and be friends with the new students!

@Alexa, 13
Don't try and rush your first kiss! It has to be special! If someone asks you about it, tell them that you're waiting for the right guy! ;)

Anny, 10
Bright red is perfectly normal! That is the color if blood! It will only start to look darker when it sits for a while!

Good luck, girlies! ;)

Thank you for this opportunity, Jemma! You should do this more often! :D

Anonymous Rosebud, phew that was a lot of writing... said...

@Taia- Talk to your parent/guardian and see if they'll let you wear makeup. I have friends who wear makeup and are 11.

@Olivia- Just think up stuff to say to him if he does ask you out. I do this all the time for embarrassing situations.

@Vallari- Don't worry about your height. Being a certain height isn't good or bad. It depends on how you look at it.

@NoPads- Don't feel stressed it you don't have padded bras and everyone else does. Your time will come. Just think, there is some girl out there who is the only one that has padded bras and is stressed out. Puberty has a VERY wide range.

@LR- The best time to ask your mom is when you are already out shopping. If you pass a stand, ask her.

@Natalie- Everyone is different and discharge might run long in her family. Comfort her if she feels sad or scared, even if you still are.

@bo-zephyr- At first, periods may seem scary. As you get used to it, it's not scary. I do admit it is surprising to wipe and find blood on the toilet paper!

@Shelby- Ooooookay. I know exactly how you feel!!! When I was 9, everyone else knew, and I was just sitting in the corner not saying anything. Ask your mom, because sometimes kids aren't sure themselves and get it all wrong- #Stork

@Kenli- Just ignore them if they say that to you. It's really annoying when people say this about my friends.

@Worried- talk to your mom about the situation and maybe she can make that room yours. Is worse comes to worse, you could hang a curtain and split the room in half.

@LR- I get really jealous too. Just know that sometimes you can't control emotions and you can't help how you feel.

@Emma- He might have thought you were just a friend to him and now it is awkward that he knows. Thinking from a boy's perspective is very hard! Just let your emotions go and do what you do.

@B.B.T.E- Puberty is very confusing and has a wide range. There is no "normal" sizes for boobs or times for periods.

@Britt- Get a calender and mark where your period days. A smile for mood changes, heart for light period days, star for heavy days. Track patterns after about 2 years. Periods are wacky at first. I'm still waiting on my second period.

@Paniz- Be yourself!!! Try to be nice, so you can make new friends and make a good first impression on people.

@Alexa- Don't worry, your time will come. I'm actually surprised that all your friends have at age 13! Love takes time, just wait <3

@Anny- Congrats, you're a woman! My first period was bright red too, but then turned brown at the end.

@ Taia
Whether or not you wear make up is an entirely personal decision, dont feel pressured to wear it, I'm sure you're beautiful enough already! If you want to wear make up and your parents allow it, go for it! Just make sure you don't go over board, lip glosses and mascara is a nice start.
@ Olivia
It entirely depends on whether you do want to be his girlfriend or not. If you don't want to just say something along the lines of, "I'm sorry, you're a really nice guy but I don't want to go out with you", if he asks why just use the 'parents don't let me date' trick. If you do want to go out with him, be confident, calm and polite, say, "yes I would really like to go out with you, thank you for asking me". Remember though, you are still very young, I did not date anyone until I was 14. Don't feel pressured by him and your friends, do what feels right for you.
@ Vallari
Every single person comes in different shapes and sizes, and a lot of the time we forget that there is no "average" size/shape/weight/height because we are all different! Remember, you still have growing to do, and you will grow taller, I can guarantee you. While you are waiting for that to happen learn to embrace your height! Everyone is beautiful, and you are most beautiful when you can love your body just the way it is.
@ No Pads
As with a lot of things, bras are a very personal choice. The type you wear and whether you wear them at all is entirely up to you. You are probably not the only one in your class thinking this. If you don't think you are ready for padded bras don't feel pressured to wear them. If you want some bring it up with your mum, see what she says.
@ LR
Next time you and your mum are out shopping just casually slip into a conversation that you want to look at the bras, if she asks why, tell her you feel like you need one, most mums will be really understanding. Or you can talk to her alone at home, say something like "hey mum, I was wondering if we could go shopping by ourselves, and maybe we can see if I can get a bra?". If you'd prefer just leave a note out for her, or flip her a text!
@ Natalie
You are a lovely friend for asking for help for her. Remember, a girl can get her period anytime between 9 years old and 16 years old, assuming your friend is 10 like you, she still has about 6 years to wait before she should really start worrying. Give your friend some support to talk to her mum about it, usually the age you start your period is genetic, maybe her mum will be able to help her stop worrying about it. If not you and your friend could go and talk to your school nurse, usually they know how to help out with things like that.
@ bo-zephyr
Periods can be a little scary when you first get them. But over time you will get used to them. It may be a little uncomfortable, especially if you don't like blood, but remember, every single woman in history has had periods, so they mustn't be all that bad, right?
@ Shelby
Don't worry, at 9 years old there is no need for you to be certain what sex is. What you can do if you really want to know is go to your local library, and look at non-fiction books about growing up and puberty, usually they have a brief description of what sex involves. This is because puberty is getting you ready to be a sexually mature adult, it's not happening for no reason!
@ Kenli
You say, "it is my decision", then walk away and stay fabulous. I'm not kidding, (to an extent), if someone keeps telling you that you need to tell them that it doesn't matter what they think, that you choose to wear a bra because you feel comfortable wearing one and it is not for them to decide. If this is people at school telling you this, tell a teacher! That's bullying and it's not okay. Remember, your body, your decision.

July 18, 2013 at 4:45 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

@ Worried
Talk to your mum about it, tell her exactly why you feel like you should get the room instead of your brother. Be polite and mature when you're talking to her, she may decide that you can have the other bedroom or she may not, if she doesn't don't worry too much! Ultimately it is your mothers decision, and I'm pretty sure she will take you seriously and be understanding.
@ LR
In this situation there isn't much you can do. You can talk to him about how you feel when you see other girls with him, and maybe he will try and stop this from happening. Or you can ask him out, and then he would feel like he has to stop other girls from touching him because he has a girlfriend. Remember, jealousy does not look good on anyone. The only thing you can do is accept it, or change the situation.
@ Emma
Any boy who avoids you like that is not worth your time and feelings. When it comes to emotions there is no right or wrong emotion to feel in any situation. For example, you might go on a class trip to the zoo and be looking at the lions. Now some kids in your class might feel scared, others might feel excited, some might be bored and others happy. None of those kids are exclusively right or wrong, there is no set feeling in any situation. If you feel happy that he is moving, then you are right, if you feel sad that he is moving you are also right! Don't try to change your emotions, just notice them, and then move on.
@ B.B.T.E
As I said before, every single person comes in different shapes and sizes. Everyone is beautiful. There is no set cup size that you should be at 12. There is no 'average' because everyone is so different. Love your body just the way it is, and you will shine everyday with confidence and beauty.
@ Britt
The easiest thing to do is mark it on a calendar, you don't have to write in big letters 'HAD MY PERIOD TODAY', you can just put little dots on the days you had your period. Over time your period will fall into a set pattern and you won't need to keep track anymore, you'll just know, y'know?
@ Paniz
Being the new girl can be very nerve-wracking, but you can also embrace it. You are the new girl, no one knows you, you can be whoever you want to be. Just remember to smile at people, say "hi", join sports teams or clubs, introduce yourself to people. You'll be fine, I promise.
@ Alexa
First kisses are special, instead of feeling embarrassed you should feel proud of yourself for waiting. A lot of kids haven't had their first kiss at 13, so don't worry that you are the only one. Wait for someone special, wait for the right moment, wait until it's someone you like a lot, and you know that you want to share that with. (Also first kisses are usually more than a little awkward and uncomfortable, so you're not missing out on too much).
@ Anny
Periods are different for everyone. They may be dark red, maroon, bright red, light pink, heavy, light, green.... (only messing with you). Don't worry too much about it. If you are concerned talk to a trusted female or a school nurse.

@taia if you are thinking about using makeup it does help to know when if you ask your friends or maybe an older sister. I started around your age. If you do want to start then you should start out choosing lighter floors that don't "pop" as much but still adds a little Colorado:-)

@ B.B.T.E. you shouldn't be worried about how big or how fast your breasts are forming. Every girl grows at her own individual rate. Don't judge yourself on whether or not you fit in, this will only cause insecurity. When you talk to your friends I'm sure that they aren't judging you, they are just glad that they are with you! :-)

@ No Pads you shouldn't feel left out because of this. Puberty is like a looong line some people are towards the front, some in the middle, and some in the back. We are all developing but you shouldnt wish away the time you have before padded bras just because of your friends. Be patient and love your body for the way it is! :-)

@ Britt at first keeping track of your periods is hard due to the fact that they are scattered very unequally during the first year give or take a few months but if you start to see a pattern of a certain amount of days, for example 20 days between your periods just use a calender to see when you can expect your next period. :-)

@ Shelby I was in that same situation at one point but the best thing to do is ask your parents. Don't be embarased because its something that you really should be open to discussing with your parents. And don't feel left out the truth is that they probably don't know much of anything about sex. Some kids claim that they do or make stuff up so that they don't feel left out. :-)

Every day you have time, clean out one part of your room. For example, start with your book shelf. Then do your closet, then drawers...etc. When you come across something you've saved, ask yourself this, "Do I really need this?" If you answer yes, put it in a yes pile, make a no pile, and an in the middle pile. If you have papers, put them in folders, stuffed animals in one big basket or on your bed, miscellaneous toys in plastic containers. Trophies, medals, and certificates you should probably keep and display. Once you've cleaned out everything, you can get into the habit of vacuuming your floors and dusting your surfaces every so often. This is exactly how I cleaned up my room and I hope it helps you!

To Taia: eleven is not exactly a great age to start make up, since you don't really need it! If you really want to though, I suggest using more natural colors.

No pads: Padded bras are used to make sure your breasts are entirely covered. You can ask your mom to by you one if you feel you need to.

LR: When you have time alone with your mom, just casually say you are growing up, and need to get a bra that is a better look for you. She will understand :)

Bo-zephyr: Not as much as everything makes them seem, trust me :) your first one my be scathe because you've never had one before and need time to get used to it. Once you know how to handle and deal with your period it can actually be a fun experience!

When I clean my room, or organize my desk, I make it a game. I give my self five minutes, and pretend to get a phone call that a celebrity (Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning, Jennifer Lawrence... you choose) has come to my town and wants to visit my house... and hang out in my room [maybe wants to go through my drawers too :)] and I only have five minutes to clean it! :) This makes it fun and quick. After five minutes, if your room/desk/drawers isn't clean, do it again. I don't know if this will work for drawers, but I hope it will.

Taia,
eleven is a bit young for makeup (I'm eleven too) but if you really want to, ask your mom for advice.

Vallari,
don't worry about it too much. there isn't that much you can do about your height.

No Pads,
know that you're not alone. I'm eleven and no pads either!
LR,
you don't have to tell your mom outright if you feel uncomfortable, say something about thinking people can see through your shirt or something...
Natalie,
don't worry too much, everyone is different, however, if your friend doesn't have her period by age 16 she should probably go see a doctor.

Shelby,
people like to act like they know things so if you don't know yet, it's fine. i strongly advise against searching that stuff online because taht may lead you to some... erm... icky topics.

Kenli,
your bra is not anyone else's business so if you feel that you have to wear one, by all means, go ahead.

B.B.T.E.,
there really isn't such thing as 'average' when it comes to puberty. trust me, everyone always thinks that there's something 'wrong' with them.

Paniz,
being the new girl isn't easy, but you probably figured that out already. just be yourself!

wow, that was a long post, sorry I couldn't answer all of your questions because I didn't have enough expirence in that stuff and I don't want to give bad answers. before I start to bore you even more,

Okay, periods.
First of all, periods are not scary. They are just bright red if it's fresh blood. Don't worry, that just means your period just came just before you pulled down your pants. They happen every month around the same week, so you can track it then.

Make-Up
I don't necessarily recommend you to wear make up at that age, but it really depends if your parents let you. I don't wear make up and I'm going to grade 8 (AHH. ED SHEERAN SONG. ;) )

Crushes
If your crush asks you out, then I'd say go for it. There's probably not going to be another chance. But, keep your date simple, like to the park, or local coffee shop.
Oh, and if you told you crush you like him and he's avoiding you, you don't deserve him. I know it's awkward, but that's kind of mean. So you should be happy if he moves. It'll be better for you.

Height
Who cares if you're tiny. I'm 5.1, shorter than you! I love my height. Don't be insecure because of your height. Advantages of being short, short people tend to be more clever and feisty. People tease you for your height, but they usually have a clever, quick comeback.

Breasts and Bras
Okay, you can wear a training bra even if you don't have any cleavage. I did. If you want a padded bra, go to the store and ask for breast measurements. And, lastly, even if this doesn't answer your question, you don't need to wear a bra. It just helps to keep your boobs from sagging and that's it.

Hope I answered everything, and umm, I don't think there's anything left, so, good luck! :* Love you all.

@Emily, you probably shouldn't take your brother seriously
After all, he's a boy, and has never gone through a period nor will he ever. Period pain is often just cramps, which are caused by the muscles in your uterus contracting. Some girls have worse cramps than others, and you can take aspirin to relieve the pain or use a heating pad on your stomach. Every girl is different.

Worried, I wish I knew why your periods are keeping you from sharing a bedroom. If you need privacy and are afraid to change in front of people you can buy wingless pads or use tampons. If you leak, use an overnight pad that have extra protection. I cant really imagine what else you'd need a separate room for, if it's your periods that bother you.

Just wait it out. Your period will come eventually, and you will know. You get moody and crampy. In the meantime just buy some pads and keep them in your purse, locker, and sports bag so you can be prepared in case the red sister comes!

@confuzzled

Pads are supposed to be about the same width as your underwear and be about the length of your thumb and pinky finger when you do the hang loose thing with them spread apart and your other 3 fingers curled in, or about half the length of a piece of paper in portrait style.

Okay. Now, for girls worrying about periods. They actually don't hurt. I just got my first period recently. Before that, I always wondered if it would hurt and all that stuff. Well, it doesn't. When you get it for the first time, it might be freaky. It's actually a pretty happy time for your mom and sisters, because you're a young woman! :D LOL! About pads, you gotta change them ALL THE TIME. You'll get used to it though! Tampons, that's up to you and your parents to decide if you should use it. Some will approve, others, they won't. My mom didnt approve, so I dunno how it's like. When you have your period, you get cramps and headaches. THAT's what hurts.

Dear Taia,
11 is a good age to start playing with makeup, just remember to keep it natural. Start with some concealer, translucent powder, mascara and lipbalm or lipgloss.



Dear Olivia,
If he likes you and you really do like him then just go with it! If he asks you out say yes if you really want to, and just act calm


Dear Vallari,
First of all i'm assuming you're about 12? Anyway, i'm 11 and only 4 foot 5 so don't be upset. Embrace what you were given



Dear No Pads,
Don't get a padded bra if you really don't need one. Wait until your breasts grow bigger. Right now, if you really want to, get a training bra or a soft cup bra.



Dear LR,
Next time you're in a store walk by the bra section, pick one up and say, hey mom can I try this on?



Dear Natalie,
Perhaps the discharge isn't discharge at all, and don't worry, the latest your period should start is 16 so by then if it hasn't come you should worry.


Dear bo-zephyr
don't be afraid of periods as they are natural and every single girl gets them. If you are worried ask your mom, older sister or trusted female relative for advice


Dar Shelby
Lots of people your age aren't certain on the topic of sex so just ask your mom or dad, someone you trust to get you a book about it or to tell you what it is.



Dear Kenli,
you could Tell them that it's your choice, but if you really don't have any boobs at all, you shouldn't be wearing one



Dear worried,
Explain calmly and responsibly to your parents that you need the room for more privacy. Don't tell your brother. Your parents should just tell him to let you have the room. Bear in mind though that he may begin going through puberty as well, depending on his age


Dear LR,
If he really does like you then he wouldn't really take notice of the other girls. just try and stay calm and don't make a huge fuss about it. Remember that he's not your boyfriend, but you could make a move so that you can tell those girls to get off him (lol)



Dear Emma,
Don't be too upset because if you didn't talk or you know he didn't like you then you can just move on and find a new boy to crush on ;)



Dear B.B.T.E,
It doesn't matter what size boobs you are, they all do the same job. Don't be ashamed, everyone is different

Dear Britt,
Maybe you could buy or make a calendar and work out when your periods should be.



Dear paniz,
be nice to everyone and you will make friends (or even a boyfriend!) quickly


Dear Alexa,
Everyone has their first kiss at a different time. you have yours when you're ready. Your first kiss is special and you'll remember it forever.

Hi Anny,
Everyone's period is different. if you're worried, talk to your mom.

You can take the class, but if people start asking you why, you could say "What!!! I didn't HAVE to take this class??!!" Also, there might be other people who take it that you didn't realize would. I can't believe it's optional at your school, though... I have to take it this year, 7th grade. From what I heard from my older classmates, it's NOT FUN and VERY AWKWARD! imscared.

@Pinkadink yeah they teach sex-ed all throughout middle school at my school but its because they want you to learn early on not to have sex until marriage. Kids (from my experience) start spreading rumors and talking about sex when they are young and act like its something you should do. That's why they want to teach it in middle school.

If you just had vaginal discharge, it'll keep going for 1-2 years before you get your period. But if you want, you can get pads to be prepared and ready for the big day. :)

@Rosebud, it really isn't all that scathe. Maybe a little awkward at first, but once you get into the swing of things, you might actually find sex ed interesting. After all, this ks something you might have never learner about before. Keep an open mind.

Besides. I have a crush and I some times wonder if he likes me the same way I like him but anyways he never made any signal of any sort to tell me of his feelings. But if nothing works just stand up chest out and move on even if it is painfull then go do some thing you like and breath in and out slowly. No matter how you put it crushes HURT!!

So this year is my first year of middle school. We started last Thursday (Today is Monday) and Thursday was a half day. On the first day all the teachers were trying to be nice and stuff. On the second day it was a full day, and I was only a few seconds late for my fourth period Science class. Anyway, I don't like my school. Over the weekend I chilled and hung out with my mom. On Monday (Today) I totally freaked out. Yesturday I was a bit sickish, but it went away. Today I felt sick, my stomach hurt and I was soooo upset. I cried and cried and begged to stay home. On the way to school I told my dad I felt sick. He turned around and took me home and I laid in bed all day. I also hung out with my mom. Tomorrow is Tuesday and I have to go to school. I'm so scared and upset. I don't want to go back. Someone please help. I just don't like my school. I don't want to go back. Help!!!!!

Answers!!

@Taia : In my opinion, you are because if you start wearing make-up too early, you'll get too used to it and you may develop an uncomfortable feeling to go out without it. I say, go for the natural look!

@Olivia : If you have such a serious crush, you can accept his offer/can decline the offer politely, depending on your age!

@Vallari :If your height is shorter than average, I would advise you not to worry. Height isn't worth worrying so much about. Just relax and enjoy being you!

@No Pads : If you're feeling too left out, try asking your mom to buy you one.

@LR : This was the same situation I was in! I just wandered over to the bra section casually and my mom just laughed and asked me if I needed a bra! I said yes and she bought me one.I found this easier than having a conversation, but it depends on what you are comfortable doing!

@Natalie : Well, it depends on her age, but I suggest that she tells her mother.Mothers are sort-out experts!

@Bo-zephyr : This totally depends on you. For me it was normal, but for someone I know it was terrifying! On the whole, it just shows that you matured into a woman.

@Shelby: Let's just say it means reproduction! Don't worry if you don't know, I didn't know till I was 12!

@Kenli : Ignore them.

@Worried : Talk to your parents about how you need some privacy.They'll understand for sure!

@LR : Frankly, I think you shouldn't be worried! Crushes are fun, I admit, but aren't that important to worry about!

@Emma : I personally think you shouldn't be too sad. Maybe he's not ready to be committed to a relationship yet. If he's avoiding you, maybe you should send him an e-mail or something, just a casual friendly one.

@B.B.T.E. : It basically depends on your DNA! If your family has big breasts, you might too.. but don't worry, its all part of growing up...

@Britt : After the last day of one month's period,just count about 21-35 days and you'll have it next.

@Paniz : Be natural, friendly, and maybe join a club or activity to meet new friends!

@Alexa : I haven't had my first kiss either, so chillax.....

@Anny : Ask your mom. She'll probably know.

And I have a question PLS girls,
I haven't had my period yet and I'm almost 13!! I have hair on my underarms and a bit of hair "Down There" , and started developing boobs maybe 1 year ago... I'm really worried...

Hey, Anonymous!
My advice to you comes in two parts:
a) The first thing is to know how to take care of your period. I'll give you some tips:
Change your pad every 4 hours or so. Carry extra pads with you to school or on a trip. Also, I would advise you to carry some wipes and some napkins. It gets really uncomfortable otherwise, and believe me, I have had experience!

If you are having cramps or moodiness, I would advise you to take a hot shower, drink some Chamomile tea, or eat a bit of your favorite treats if you feel up to it. I try chocolate, it works really well!

Also, make sure you learn to dispose of your pads (sanitary napkins) or tampons.At home, it's easy, but outside or at school, it might be tough. Carry a plastic bag or old newspaper with you, so that you can cover your pads and dispose of them neatly. Usually, there is a bin in the cubicle of girls' bathrooms, so use that.

b) Try telling a close friend's mother, or a female teacher. Also, do your best to explain to your dad. It doesn't have to be a conversation, maybe an email or a letter, even.
Wishing you a happy first period!

Hey, Alexa!
Just relax........... we've all been through that worrying phase, but you'll have it soon, guaranteed!

Also, Pls commenting girls, feel free to ask me anything about Boys, Periods, Bras, Breasts, or anything else that is bugging you!! I'll try to help you best as I can, because every girls goes through daydreaming about crushes, worrying about periods, wondering about bras, and measuring her breasts!

That dreamy boy sits down next to your desk at home room class and gets out his stuff ignoring you mean while you try your best to ignore him but you are so absorbed in what he is doing besides beats doing boreing math questions! Anyway you strain your head to turn away from that dreamy figure that is bent over writeing out the answers tothe math sheet. You finaly can't take it anymore you look fully at him .You sigh a deep sigh that everyone could hear you. The boy looks up your still looking at him dreamly then when you snap out of it you blush and turn quickly back at you math sheet. You heart raceing your nurves feal shot your viens hurt as the blood rushes up and down you feal as if you ran in a twenty thousand mile race with your mucels sore and sweaty. You try to breath but your lungs hurt to.He looks back at you and....Oh well mabe thats not your story but thats what mine was like! But anyways back to the question my answer is yes at some point he should noteiced you even when you are not looking at him he mite watch you.As for being afraid of talking to him and what to say after that weak akward scilent hello you stampered out finaly don't worry if you really want to talk to him do it when he isn't talking to other girls or when its just a few kids that he isn't talking to. A great way of geting to know him is when your teachers are puting together two kids to work on a project go ask him if he'd like to work with you on it and if he'd like to come over to your house or where ever to discuss what to do for the project in mean while talk about what you did over the weekend ask him questions but don't drown him with too many just go with the flow. If you are worried about popular girls geting to be girl friends with him its ok if he likes a girl more than you and just wants to be friends with you agree with him and remaine friends.Just buy some tissues mabe a small pack f it is the end of the world for you. After crying it out stand up strait and move on till your real prince charming comes along but it mite be the same case with him like it was with that other boy who knows I just wish you good luck !

Okay, I am going to try to address ALL of these questions if possible. It might take two comments though. I'm 15 and have gone through all of these problems ladies. Periods, Bras, and boys included. So here goes.

Taia: This isn't just because you are 11, but I don't think any girl should wear makeup. It hides the REAL YOU from the world. Wake up every day fresh faced and stay that way. Everyone is beautiful inside and OUT and when girls wear makeup, they tend to forget that. :)

Olivia: Honestly I think you are a little young for a boyfriend, but that is not for me to say. If you like him, then I would go for it. But before you do, make sure that he is someone that is going to treat you like a queen. You don't want some guy that you think is cute and that is all there is to it. You deserve the whole package. ;)

Vallari: It's okay! I have lots of short friends and I'm really tall! Your short height doesn't define who you are. And BTW, there is a plus to being short. You can wear heels and still be shorter than the guys. (I kind of have a BIG problem with that)

No Pads: I personally didn't start wearing training bras until I was 11. I was a late bloomer in everything but it was still okay. You shouldn't feel the need to be like every other girl in your class, be different! BE AWESOME! Your time for padded bras will come sooner than you think. And don't be too worried about it. Bras hurt a lot sometimes :/

LR: Don't be scared to talk to your mom! It's natural! Just imagine, your mom once had to go through the same exact thing. She knows how you feel. It might be a little weird at first, (I still don't like to go bra shopping. It makes me uncomfortable) but once you get used to it, you'll be like, "Hey mom! Look at this one! Cheetah with hot pink lace! Super cute, right?" :)

Natalie: When I was your age, I used to come on to PLS and wonder why all these girls were having problems with their periods whil I didn't even have mine. I thought I was VERY unusual because I had discharge for several years and still hadn't had my period! I was 14 when I FINALLY got my period and I realized that it wasn't actually as much of a problem as I thought it had been. My mom was 17 when she got hers, my sister was 16, and so my family is full of late bloomers. Let your friend know that it isn't something that she should worry about too much. Her period will come in due time. And then she will wish it never had. Haha

Bo-zephyr: Yes. They can be. It really depends upon how your periods are personally. But when it finally comes, just remember that every girl has to go through it. I think our motto should be: "GIRLS UNITE!!! PERIODS WE'LL FIGHT!!!" Hehe

Shelbi: That is more of something for your parents to talk to you about. And seriously, once you know, you will NEVER have wanted to know!!!

Kenli: Sometimes people just don't know when to keep things to themselves. Whenever someone ask you that, politely say, " Thank you for your concern, but it is a personal decision. Not something for you to decide. " Smile, and walk away.

Next part to come shortly.

PART 2:

Worried: If you already have your periods, that would be something to talk over with your mother. Otherwise, I would find sharing a room with my mother as a bonding experiance. You could have "At home girls nights!" within the comfort of your bedroom.

LR: Well, know that you have admitted to your crush that you like him, you might could tell him about how you feel when you get jealous. Yes, it might be a little weird, and since you aren't dating there isn't anything SERIOUS you could do about your problem, but most of all, I would suggest prayer. If you are a Christian, and even if you are not, pray. Ask the Lord to take away those feelings of jealousy. He will hear you and answer your prayers. I promise ;)

Emma: That stinks that he is avoiding you, but maybe it could be that he has the same feelings for you, or that he is afraid that it will ruin your friendship if he tells you he doesn't feel that way about you. You shouldn't feel happy OR sad though. I might would be a little disappointed, but I'm sure your prince will come for you a the perfect time. And hey! You never know, this boy might just show up someday, sweep you off your feet, and be THE ONE! ;)

B.B.T.E: It's alright that you have big boobs! I do too! Lots of girls do! It may not be the average thing at your school, but girls everywhere are suffering of B.B.S. (Big Boob Syndrome) It's nothing to hide or be ashamed of. I'm sure there are at least 2-3 girls in your class that are jealous that they don't have as big of boobs. Haha

Britt: Honetsly, I have no help for you on this one. I have tried myself, and I can't figure it out. I did find a calendar for girls though! Give it a try! It si from a website completely for helping girls understand how to work their periods. They sell first period kits and everything! (They even have blood resistant undies) Here is the link that is strictly just the pdf file for the calendar: http://www.dotgirlproducts.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/DotGirlcalendar2010.pdf
Hope this helps!

Paniz: We've all been the new girl at least once. My best advice to you is not to be shy and introvertish, but be outgoing, be yourself, be confident, and be AWESOME! There will be people lining up at your door to be you friend! :)

Alexa: Sweetie, You're 13 so you are closer to my age since I'm 15. I have NEVER even come CLOSE to kissing a boy. Boys are putrid. They stink and make weird noises, and are just plain old terrible. :) But when they are sweet, they make you want to be all lovey-dovey and just kiss them over and over. I have made a personal commitment not to kiss any boy until the day I get married. It is something special that I want my husband to be the first and only one I share it with. If you have not made that commitment, that;s fine. But don't feel like an outsider because you haven't had your first kiss. It is something to be proud of! You have had the guts NOT to give a piece of your heart away to some petty guy. Look at it as a good thing, not something to feel sorry about! Keep being strong girlfriend! :)

Anny: When I first got my period, It lasted 13 DAYS. I thought it was horribly weird. But, I don't believe that the color of your blood is that big of a deal. I have had times where it is bright red, and when it is dark red. If you find it to be a continuous problem, ask your mom about it and see what she says. Don't be too worried though.

Alrighty. I believe I've covered everyone. Hope you grils find this as good advice, and continue to BE CONFIDENT IN YOURSELF! ;)

With best regards,
Anna

P.S. If this works, I hope that any one of you girls would email me to ask questions. I'm totally up for any advice that you need! My email is clackadoodledoo@aol.com. I don't keep it private, so it's okay if you just go ahead and ask all kinds of questions. Thanks! Love ya'll! ;)

@bo-zephyr ;
Yes, when you first get them they can be terrifying and you're constantly worried what's normal and what's not. And you'll be petrified if you miss one, oh I've been there! What you have to remember is you get it once a month, so saying you've started a year ago sounds a lot! But really that's only 12 periods. They will take a while to become normal, just don't be afraid to ask for help and you'll be fine x

Dear anonymus:Oh boy I know right your crush is avioding you!And you thought it'd be hunkydory for you and just fine after he knows about you fealings and now he is just not paying atention! You wonder if he knows how much it hurts you that he isn't talking to you any more and you think Did I do the right thing by telling him? The answer is yes you did the right thing but boys are not just getting the hint these days! I know been there girl! But I think I have a couple ways of handeling this that i'd like you to try.Number one: Go up to him and say hi. Or, how are you? Or we've not been talking that much after I told you about how I feal and just wanted to make srue you are ok and if you just want to be friends. What ever is comfertable for you! And when you talk to him try and use casual words and try not to blush or giggle to make sure if he just wants to be friends and not the other kind you know(boyfriend girlfirend). And when it comes to timeing like say if you are at school do it when every one isn't talking to him and is just walking around him and you then ask. And do it when he seems in a good mood you need to be observent and watch him closely and see how he reacts to things see if he is laughing with his friends and jokeing along with them then thats the best time to make a move.Or you could E-mail him and typ Hi i just wanted to know if you are ok and would just like to remain friends and its totaly cool if you find it weired hanging out with me I don't mind but if you'd like to I'd be happy to do something with you thats just only if you want to.That'd be the best way of telling him that you are ok if he dosen't like you the way you like him. I know its hard but you'll more than likely get it over with him and move on I mean our likes and dislikes chang over the years take for example Me with my love for cinderela now i'm in to teenage mutant ninja turtles and don't like cinderela any more.Ok don't use me as an example! lol. But you mite like this one guy for now but after a couple of years with him then you mite find out things that have grown in him that you dislike so if he liked chocolate one year and then as he gets older he could like something els. But when you are older and the biger problems pop up you would chang your mind about that guy. What if he isn't your real prince charming? We'll then I'm sure your real one will come and replace the fiction one. And be a good friend to him even if he dosn't like you the same way. I wish you a happy day dreaming!:)

Dear Anonymous: Well to tell you the truth you can't really ever know if a boy likes you or not. Boys are some times afraid that if they show there feelings to you you'd want to avoid them because you don't like them they way they like you. And when they do show that they like you they some times take it back before you can say anything. I hate it when they do that because it leaves you confused if he likes you or not! I'll share a story with you ok here it goes so one day my crush (Now my boyfriend) was talking to me and he accidently showed his feelings to me and he took it back and I shouted aloud : Oh for goodness sake you either like me or not!!. He blushed and his friends crowded around us and one of them said: just tell her dude! My boyfriend blushed again and asked me if I was doing anything that afternoon. I told him I'd be at the skating rink he said he'll bring me lunch. I said ok and after that we where a couple. I am now fifteen in a half and he is sixteen his mom found out that we really like each other and she invited me to come over and bake brownies with her . I stayed over there for four hours waiting for my boyfriend to come back from football practice. His mom and I were talking about how he and I meet and how we like each other. When I was finished talking his mom broke down in tears and hugged me ( So hard I couldn't breath!) she was saying how happy she was for me and about how she and her husband met and how he died( R.I.P Mr. Harding ). It was heart warming. Oh boy didn't realize how much stuff I wrote! Well anyways that's your answer boys are just some times a little shy to show how they feel about a girl. I hope that you have enough information here! :) luv, la la land girl!

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Dear anonymous: Don't feel to bad I mean if that's the only bra you can get that is comfortable then your ok if your friends laugh at you just say that its because of your brazier ( I guess its a French word for bra ooh fancy) and that its the only kind you can get that has enough support. I know my Best friend forever wears sports bras and they seem ok. But what color bra is it when you wear the white shirt? If it shows then I'd be kind of embarrassed if people noetic it. But you can ask your mom about it and find out if you need a new bra. But some times mothers say that because you are getting older you need a sports bra even if you are still a flat chest and you are still developing quite some time then just tell your friends that you need to wear one whether they make fun of you or not . All though you probably get angry or annoyed with them always throwing it in your face just remember they are still your friends and you'd want to be kind as long as you still want to be friends with them. Just remember let the anger flow over you like a river over stone in any thing that happens to you in any events. Just take a deep breath girl you are going on up to tweens sooner than you think! And the next time you ask a question here and you are in your teens I'll say welcome to the club girl! ;) Puss: I'll see you again kitty soft paws! Kitty soft paws: Sooner than you think!

@ anonymous

There is no real way to prepare for your period. All you need is to know it's going to happen and to take a pad or two with you wherever you go.

December 2, 2013 at 2:03 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Dear anonymous: Well my info comes in two parts. One: You'll want to wear pads or tampons (which ever you or your mom prefer) and take showers after you are done with your period. Two: Eat stuff with iron in it like fish or oils. Three: Prepare for mood swings! I know that some times I was happy and other times I was sad so just eat some thing that is soothing or warm and take naps and focus on some thing that makes you relaxed. If you are at school when you get it just raise your hand and ask if you can use the girls room. While in the girls room take some paper and put it on the spot. You can take extra clothes just to be ready to change them if you do end up at school and it happens. I'd just wash the stained clothes while still in the girls room with cold water ( Never use warm because it would make the stain stay in the pants!) And when you and your mom shop for the pads (or tampons) look for the sizes and how long you can wear them until they get full of blood. And when a person asks are you on "That time of the month" just so you know that means are you on your period. When I was on my " That time of the month" EVERY one knew it! At Walmart it seemed like all the babies in the world was there! My mother had to drag me away from every baby I was looking at. The same with boys there was tons of cute guys and each one grabs my attention! But that's how I ended up with a boy friend and another best friend. ( Not the best way of makeing friends I asure you!) But that is what happened. I hope you have a good period month! Luv Kitty Soft Paws!

Dear Anonymous: Well just tell him in a nice way and do it on a day that he is in a good mood ( worked for me) Just say: Hi how are you I'd like for us to not be kissing as much it makes me uncomfertable so what are you doing for the weekend...That would be the best way to end the conversation and call it a date with out all the unwanted kissing. When you say it make it firm and strong so he knows you mean it and wont do it again and again just tell him you'd like him to stop and if you want one kiss just tell him and just one kiss no more than one kiss. I'm sure you'll get good results and he'll be aware of him self and do what you want and what you need! :) Thanks for reading hope it helps, Luv Kitty Soft Paws! Meow!

Dear Pink Locker Society: I'm not sure if boys are ok to be on this web site but I guess I'm the only guy brave enough to be on here. My question is how can I get to understand a girl better I mean girls are so confusing I don't know if what I say mite offend a girl. Example: I was going to school with this one girl and I told her that I like her and would like to hang out. She said ok and we've been going out awhile until a new girl in town showed up and she was equally more smarter and beautiful and she understood what I wanted out of a girl. But the other girl I've hung out with found out and got really upset she cried when I told her about the other girl. When I tried to tell her in a nice way that we could be just friends she got so upset with me and her self she slaped me and said that I was dear to her and that I was her only special some one in her heart and now that her heart is broken I escaped from it and shall never return in my place in her heart...not ever. So feeling bad and sore about the event I went home and called the old girlfriend on the phone I left a message on it saying how sorry I was for hurting her and that I'd like to make it up to her some day and when would she like to get her puppy back ( She left her stuffed dog on my porch one time). The next day of school I saw her but when I was walking towards her the new girl shoved me aside and said : Hey handsome what are you doing? I just told her that I needed to talk to my old girl friend. The new girl rolled her eyes and said go ahead as if I asked her permission! Now after geting away from the new girl friend I walked up to my old girlfriend and told her that I had left her a message on her phone and if she had gotten it. She said yes and shoved past me to get to math class. At lunch time I sat down next to her and kept trying to tell her that I was sorry and that I'd like to just be friends because she dosen't have what I want in a girl. She glared at me and snaps: And you think miss " I own the place" over there dose?! ( Pointing to the new girl friend who was pushing aside a short girl out of her way to be in front of the lunch line) I now have gilt and frustration and I want to dump the new girl friend and return to my old but how can I do that exactly? I don't want the trouble to start all over again. I feel as if I didn't see what a beautiful girl my old girlfriend was and how I took it for granted and threw her away which made her feel hurt and sad made me sick to my stomach seeing what a jerk I was to her( That is why I am home to type this because I'm sick) Next day I should be better So how do I tell her that I'm sorry and like to hang out again with out her thinking its just a prank to hurt her again? Please help thanks, Ninja power boy.

You should toats dump the new girl by saying this gently: "um hey (insert new gf's name here) ive been thinking about it and i dont think we should be bf and gf anymore." wait to see what she says and if she seems angry dodge a slap and.. ok jokes but if she seems angry just say "i just dont think we should really be together i mean youre a great girl and all but i dont deserve you." no matter how untrue this may be, it still makes the girl feel good about herself. now about the other girl... well she probs feeling horrid about herself and ashamed and like shes trash so thats why shes so frustrated with you. but talking to her on the phone no that absolutely doesnt work you havee to tell her in person. if you have school dances ask her to that and tell her thier if not wel you figure out where to tell her but say this: "hey (insert old gfs name here) im really sorry for dumping you for someone else and i acted rude to you but i see how wrong i was now and it would be really nice of you to forgive me for what a mean jerk i acted like but will you forgive me?" if she starts crying and hug/kisses you its a good thing. and if she needs space just give her space. by you staying single it will tell her that you really mean it. hope i helped

And second just stay away from both girls for a week or two, the new girl is not someone u want to go out with, I promise, she sounds rude and wouldn't let you do much without her saying ok. Your old girlfriend still likes you and is upset that you don't see her the ways she sees you, give her time, and wait till she approaches you, and in the meantime don't go out with anymore girls, your too young, I can tell, my mom told me I can't till I am sixteen and I won't because middle school relationships never last long.

How do I ask my mom for a bra????

December 16, 2013 at 2:09 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Dear anonymous : Not that hard really I mean just when you are shopping go in to the bra section and pick one you like and point it out to your mom and say You : Hey mom I like this one ( Mom: Yeah its cute) You: Um can we get it? ( Mom: Sure whats the price?) You: Its..... ( How ever many dollars) So you get the idea it isn't that hard. My mom had to face being with her dad ( My granddad) at the store when she asked and he just laughed and said' all right but first lets see what size you are' and that was it and my mom went home happy that she knows she can talk about stuff like that to her dad and got a bra that fits. So just ask your mom I mean she more than likely felt uneasy talking about it with her mom so she knows how you feel. I know that my mom had so many questions that where kind of awkward to ask all of the sudden and she couldn't go to cool websites like these because she didn't have internet back then and now you do but I really support mother and daughter talk time than any other thing ( even the website sorry) Because its more healthy and you get to know each other better by talking about personal things and needs( yes even to your dad maybe not your brother unless he is older and has suffered embarrassment in his life and wont tease you about yours.) I'm pretty sure you will have a great time talking to your mom about it and other things to! Thanks so much for reading, Ninja turtle girl! Happy holidays .

The first boy states that he saw me first and then the other says that he saw me first and then fights break out and the last time it was physical fighting Punches hits and scratching they were both sent to the principles office I tried to tell them I'm not worth fighting over and that I'm just like any other straight blonde haired girl with blue eyes skinny figure and a voice for singing and hands for playing piano. Oh all right so some would find that some thing to fight over but I don't! A couple of times I told the boys that I wont like any one of them if they continue fighting over me like this I didn't get good results by saying this to them I just ended up makeing them madder with each other and they kept saying to each other that he should stop acting this way And the other said No he should change his ways first. I feel like a mother trying to straighten her two bickering boys at the same time while trying to not hurt their feelings. PLEASE HELP!!! I need them to STOP FIGHTING! Please please please please please please I wish I wasn't as beautiful as I am now. I wish these boys would look at me and scream and run at least they would stop this nonsense fighting!
