  • I started puberty at eight...but I'm a girl and we're known to develop earlier, so. Talk to your child's pediatrician and see if they know anything. You never know with all the hormones they put in food nowadays.

  • A friend of mine has a son that went through puberty at the age of 8 so I don't think it's too far fetched, although it is unusual.

  • It is possible to begin puberty at that age. Everyone develops at different rates. I had several students over the years start at young ages.
