  • love you signGOOD-EVENING LADIES!!
  • So my dd just turned 8yrs old in August. DD started developing @ the age of 5. It was just before the holidays. I was cleaning our apartment & my dd asked me to help her take her shirt off. (Lexzi was getting ready for bed) Her shirt stunk. That isn't right I thought but then again I was cleaning so I had the smell of bleach & other cleaners in my nose so I wasn't sure. My bf @ the time was willing to check her shirt. She laughed @ me & said make sure after she has her bath to let her use my deodorant until I can get her her own.
  • Time passes & we were right OMG ONLY 5yrs old & ALREADY DEVELOPING. WOW!! She started using deoderant & hasn't had stinky pits since LOL!!
  • Okay soooo more time passes (she's ONLY in kindergarten @ the time) half way through the school yr low & behold as Lexzi calls them (NO WAY- TOO SOON- NOT HAPPENING) her lemons (all excited, the first one in her class) she has Started developing breasts & by the time summer rolls around needs her training bras @ least that's what they were called when I was a kid. (They NO LONGER call them training bras)
  • Okay so we're doing alright (6yrs old) so time passes by & everything is still quite (7yrs old) August rolls around & Lexzi has her 8th birthday, September comes & goes. All is quite! October is here & everything is still quite. I decide all is GOOD @ least until she turns 9yrs. OH BOY DID I SOOO STICK MY FOOT IN MY MOUTH!! Sooo Thursday 10-10-13 rolls around & GUESS WHO STARTED HER PERIOD

My now 7yo dd started developing when she was 6. Her doctor isnt worried because of our family history of starting puberty early. I had my period at 9. Just take her to the doctor just to make sure everything is working right.

Oh my goodness ! We all got periods at age 14ยท15. I didn't need a bra until age 13. All the women in our family were skinny too. I think weight determines when you begin.puberty.

we are late developers here, thank pugs. I would really freak if my little girls were becoming little ladies so young.

My daughter started sprouting some pubes at the age of 9.  I think its stuff in the food and water.

I do not understand how people can just be so casual about this. We are talking about six, seven, eight year olds developing breasts and starting their periods!!! There is NOTHING normal about this. The onset of puberty is the onset of ADULTHOOD, growing up, being able to bear children, having sexual feelings,  It is not okay that kindergarteners are starting their periods, before they even have their permanent teeth. You can't tell me that developing adult bodies only a few years after birth will not have any physical affect on them, on their physical and mental development?  Why aren't people raging to know what can be done to stop this from happening? If it's growth hormone in the milk, then use of the hormone needs to be banned. This is not natural, it is not normal, it is not okay. Yet post after post here talk about five and six year olds starting periods and developing breasts like it's the most natural thing in the world.

That's really young.  If my daughter had started showing signs of puberty in Kindergarten I would have her butt in the Dr.s office to get it stopped.

Starting puberty at 9 is one thing, though very very early.  Starting at 6 is something else, and is in no way natural. It is not "working right." Your doctor sounds like an idiot if he thinks it IS natural and normal to start puberty at six freaking years old, and you too, if you believe it.
