Real mode or median age to start period

4 hours ago -

S. H. asks from Santa Barbara - I keep on reading or hearing from 'so-and -so' that the average age of girls starting their periods has decreased to a pretty young age.

Sanitary Pads

J. H. asks from Croton - Since having a baby and going off birth control, I'm now dealing with a medium flow period. Previously it was light flow and I could wear pantyliners.

Back acne in pre-teen/teen

What If We Just Said "NO" to all Events Planned During our Family Time?

March 1, 2015

Something in the way he mentioned it to me signaled that he was being sheepish, nervous, even. When I questioned him further, I found out why he was being evasive: the event was being held on Mother’s Day weekend.More

New York:
December 12, 2010

Sitting in Central Park this weekend, I watched as a professional photographer brought her clients to a picture-perfect hideaway for the classic holiday card photo shoot. The little munchkins and their parents, all dressed up in holiday-wear, were positioned in just the right way and instructed to say “cheese” for the camera. Let’s face it. This photo is important. It represents an entire year of existence and growth for the family, as it is mailed out to close friends and family….More
