When Did You First Talk to Your Daughter About Her Period?

There are several approaches a parent can take when it comes to talking to your daughter about her period. There's the serious, clinical route, and then there's humor. In a commercial that is sure to go viral among parents and tweens, humor appears to be winning the race thanks to an adorable actress and a real-life situation many moms probably experienced themselves.

HelloFlo, a subscription period box that contains pads and/or tampons as well as "some delicious treats," just released a two-minute ad that plays on that know-it-all girl at camp — affectionately known as the Camp Gyno — who all the girls turn to for advice when they get their period for the first time. The hilarious ad, which ties into the company's soon-to-be-released Starter Kit to help girls and their parents through their first period, takes an otherwise awkward conversation and makes it fun. So tell us, when did you first talk to your daughter about menstruation?
