Are there moms out there with girls who have started puberty early. I have a 8 yo who has been diagnosed with an accelerated adrenal process.

  • What nationality is your daughter? I am white, but my daughter is biracial (black/white) and she is 9. Reason I ask is I have been told that black girls, and bi-racial girls develop earlier. She has been wearing a training bra for over a year and is getting ready to move to a regular one. She is also getting hair and body odor, etc. She has not had her period yet, but is seriously hormonal at times.

  • I am white, and I started puberty at 7. I never knew what exactly caused it or why I was so much earlier than other girls. I didn't start my period till 12 though.
