puberty

I'm not really sure how to approach this! My step daughter just turned 9 & I'm noticing those horrible signs of puberty. Breasts, acne, attitude. The dilemma? She just got potty trained at 6! How on earth are we going to manage a period? She won't wear a bra! How will we keep a pad on her?! Sigh! Has anyone been through this yet? How did you manage?

(((hug)))  I haven't been through that with a girl.  My youngest is 11 and he's started the dreaded puberty as well.  Right now though, our biggest issues are "you have to use soap/shampoo in the shower" and "please put on deoderant" and "ugh, try brushing those teeth again". lol

Good luck & welcome to the group.
