How Do I Tell My Parents I Need to Get Some Pads in Case My Period Starts?

I Want to Get Some Pads in Case My Period Starts — How Do I Ask for Them?

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?" You can also ask your dad. He might not have the firsthand experience, but can still help you get what they need to manage your periods.
