Just Plain Talk
All of the ladies probably remember that time in health class where the world of menstruation was explained. I remember that in 6th grade we had a boring film where girls in white pants told everyone how grown up they were. It was the white pants that made it realistic.
They always would play down symptoms such as debilitating cramps, bloating, mood swings, etc. and pass them off as “normal”. That’s just the life of a lady. Credit goes to this author who actually acknowledged that not everyone reacts the same way and that symptoms should be addressed by a doctor.
Certainly not the worst book we have seen about menstruation, but it’s still a weeder. Check out some of these special books: here, here, and here. Medical info really does need to stay fresh and it has a short shelf life. Do the preteens a favor and keep these materials up to date.
