Thanks for sharing, Joalumanah - I've heard this from a few women on World Pulse and it's so wonderful to know that there are supportive fathers out there!

How amazing it will be for a Dad to sit one on one with her daughter to talk about "period". I look forward to experiencing it with my children.
However, like Corine indicated. Few fathers have mustered up such courage and are doing great.
Thanks for sharing your story with us. Hope you are having good time!
