How do I tell my mom I need to get some pads in case my period starts?
Being prepared is a great idea. Lots of girls worry about what will happen if their period starts at school. Knowing that you have a couple pads stashed in your locker or backpack can help ease your mind. But how do you get what you need? You might just say something like, "Mom, can you help me get some pads to have in case my period starts at school?"
