Rad Dads: Talking Periods

Austin Born

Dads Fatherhood Parenting

Find you a man who isn’t afraid to talk to his son about periods.

They were in the car together the other day and our son asked what I had been frantically looking for and why (tampons). So Daddy launched into a discussion about periods — the how, the why, the stuff. Ya’ll, without hesitating he lead this conversation. 👯‍♂️ Two dudes in the car chatting about periods.

We live in a culture where woman are too often shamed because we bleed (and for a million other things). This act of stepping up, pushing through any awkwardness, and NORMALIZING a vital process of the female body will help our son become a man who respects and honors women in ALL of their amazingness.

We have an open dialogue policy in our house. Questions are never “stupid”, gross, or weird. They are the gateway to expanding our minds, to learning about the tough stuff, and for growing into empathetic, understanding, and compassionate humans.

What conversations are you having with your kids at home?
