This comment was made by an attendee at a recent presentation “have you all had a conversation with your daughters?”
This made me think…
My 15 year old daughter knows what my business is and she also knows that my menopause started prematurely, but I had to ask myself, whether she REALLY knows about the menopause.
So I asked her…
I am relieved to say that I wasn’t disappointed with the response I received, but there were some gaps in her understanding that needed filling.
I went on to explain the emotional, physical and mental changes a woman can go through during her menopausal years and how it can not only impact her life, but those closest to her.
I now feel confident that my daughter has a sound understanding and will be able to help educate her peers.
It is down to us to educate the younger generations and give them a better understanding than many of us had.
