I'm a single dad of 5 and I know it's all woman here but I could do with some advice that other dad's can't give so here goes..
Although probably not technically a pre-teen, my oldest is 9 tomorrow and I was wondering when is the right age to do the whole talk about periods and puberty etc. Her mum isn't around so as awkward as it's going to feel (though we do have a very close relationship) I know all the growing up stuff will be happening soon and I was wondering is just turned 9 too early? Should I wait until 10? 11? and how should I approach it with her. I don't want to embarrass her more than is neccessary
Any advice will be appreciated
