Re: training bras? pre adolesence? i need help!
if she's already got the breast buds than it's just about time for a training bra....how you approach would depend on your daughters personality. If she's shy you may want to just go out and buy her a training bra (this is how my other did it) and give it to her. As far as periods you do need to talk asap, maybe find a book the the library? If she likes to read you can find a good book on puberty and let her read it and let her know she can ask you whatever questions she may have, or you can tell her any stories you have of being her age and going through all of that stuff.
If you guys have an open relationship and she's not shy at all you can do a girls day out, go shopping, buy her a bra, have her pick out the one that she likes (let her know that she doesn't absolutly have to wear it now, i was very shy with wearing it when i got one, but soon she will have to wear it all of the time), go out for luch, talk to her about periods, puberty etc...make a whole day out of it. Just let her know you guys are going to have a girls day and you'll talk about girly things and the changes her body is making while going through puberty, you'll buy a bra etc.
Just follow her leads as far as how much to tell her and don't push the subject if she's not ready...she does need to know about periods asap tho, if she starts as young as you did she'll be very freaked out if she starts and doesn't know what is going on or is too shy to ask you for pads etc.
