Studies have shown that girls who feel good about their periods, and puberty, have a much better time growing up. They also do better at school and go on to lead fabulous lives.
Girls who can talk to their parents about periods etc. and who celebrate things as a family are likely to be happier and are more likely to achieve their goals in life.
