My 8 year old daughter just confided in me that she's been keeping a secret from everyone including me. She began getting pubic hair when she was 6 years old. I nearly fainted, hope it didn't show through. She was afraid I'd take her to the Dr, she dislikes Drs ever since one forced a catheter into her when she was 3, I should have said no way in hell but I thought I was doing the best thing for her...it only traumatized her.
I didn't even know her breasts were beginning, they bother her when she plays because they're painful. She's been having discharge since she was 6, I just chalked it up to "whatever", she even has under arm hair...and she's beautiful. I always knew something was wrong with her hips! She began getting an hourglass figure when she was 4, right now the kids clothes fit very tight in the hip/butt area, but way too loose on her waist...she's curvier than I am!
This momma needs help, I am terrified...and 3rd grade is just around the corner. If you've been there, have some helpful info...I would appreciate it. Thank you!.

I would bring her to a Pediatrician & get an expert opinion. This may be a sign of a pituitary problem that needs to be addressed. You need to see a Dr. about this ASAP.
