Parents and puberty: What if my dad finds out?
I’ve got one word for ya, babe: Relax. Your dad isn’t dumb. He knows girls grow up, just like guys do. And thanks to living with your mom (and an all-about-your-bod class in school, I bet), he’s got the basics of bras and periods down. While it might be embarrassing to know that any guy knows when it’s that time of the month…or that bra sitting in the laundry basket really is yours…take heart by understanding that your dad knew this was coming. It’s not a shock, trust me.
I’m not saying you’ve gotta dish the gory details to dear old dad—your mom or another trusted female should be your go-to source, since they’ve got the 411 from personal experience. But when you really need to stockpile pads and Dad’s the only one around with a car and a credit card, it can be handy to bite the bullet and ask him to take ya to the store. Swallow your pride—and your embarrassment—and get on with it.
