My mom was 13, I was 13, and my daughter was 13. My daughter was the very last girl in her class to begin, and she was SO much later than everyone else that she was beginning to fear she was abnormal. She was in 8th grade, and everyone else was in 5th. Like other posters, I had kept things around the house for a long time before she started, and seeing how the other girls handled their periods at school helped her immensely. She transitioned easily.
