|Psychological preparation of children is a must!!|
The day was interactive as both boys and girls opened up, interesting was that, boys opened up more than the girls. While talking about menstrual hygiene management, Sr. Florence asked if any of the girls could explain how they manage, a young girl came up and demonstrated how they use the sanitary pads. Sr. Florence then talked about the types of sanitary pads and how to keep clean during the menstrual periods. The school boys listened keenly and were told to accept these girls since menstrual periods were normal growth of girls as how boys also pass through the same stages of wet dreams.
RWECO will need support to support many other schools who are in need of reproductive health education.
