Parents Give The Sometimes Awkward, Sometimes Funny, Always Necessary, Talk About Periods

"Well every month, the uterus gets ready to grow a baby."

"Well every month, the uterus gets ready to grow a baby," one mother begins in a new video for Cut.

In the video, parents sit down with their kids to have the inevitable conversation about a woman's period

And while it can be an awkward topic for both parties, the video shows a lighthearted, open and honest approach to the discussion.

"It's a part of life, you gotta go through it," another mother says, shrugging and smiling. 

Afterward, the parents and their children go through tampons, pads, and birth control pills — explaining their purposes, too.

And while there is a fair share of funny moments throughout the video, we love how it opens the conversation to all members of the family, normalizing the period rather than keeping it under wraps.
