Blessing Not a Curse by Jane Bennett
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A girl's first period is a special time - a time to be honoured. It is perhaps her most important rite of passage. In her sensitive book for parents, Jane Bennett dispels the notion of the curse, replacing it with a positive and enlightened view of menarche and menstruation. With practical advice on how to explain menstruation to your daughter, help her cope with mood swings and pain, as well as handle such issues as contraception, you can feel confident that your daughter will have an affirming experience of menstruation. By reading this book, and passing on menstruation as a blessing rather than a curse, you will be giving your daughter a priceless gift for life. Handbook for mothers and daughters; Stories throughout the book gently illustrate the negatives of the 'Curse' approach and the positives of open healthy communications - 'Blessing'; User-friendly design makes for easy referencing. Illustrated throughout; This is a must have title for Mums wanting to bring their daughters forward into the world of menstruation without fear and embarrassment but with a healthy respect for the wonders of their body.
