When Should You Talk to Your Daughter about Menstruation?

In a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians older sisters Kourtney and Khloe talked to their younger sisters Kendall, 12, and Kylie, 10, about menstruation. Giggle was struck by how awkward the conversation was, but I was more concerned that the sisters are preteens and had presumably never had the "talk" with their sisters or mother before. In the US the average age of a girl's menses, or first period, is 12. When do you think you should have the "talk" with your daughter?
