Early puberty anyone?

Do any of you have a daughter who started their cycle at an early age? If so, had you already had the chance to have the talk with her? Or was she completely blind sided by it? I started when I was 10. It scared the shit out of me and I called my mom at work as I was a latch key kid and home alone. She was shocked and left work early. I'm wondering if my daughter's chances of starting around that age are increased since I did.

I was early and that was 30yrs ago.  I already was well educated on the subject.  Yes it is typically around the same time you started she will start. 

Oh and 10 isn't really early the normal range is from 9-15.

I was 10 when I started menstruation. 8 when I stated getting boobs. My mom had already had the talk. Yes, she could start around the same age as you. My dd is only 5. We will have those talks when we buy her training bras... though, she already somewhat aware.

I started at 9 but my mom had already talked to me about it because everyone on her side of the family started early. I'm worried dd will start even earlier. She is almost 7 and is already growing underarm and public hair.

I started at 10, my older sister talked to me before it happened. She said "one day your vag is going to bleed, but don't freak out its normal" lol

My daughter started last year at he age of nine. She handled it well. I have an older daughter and we talk about  that stuff around my younger daughter. Plus, she's read the books for girls and been through the class at school. I was more blindsided than she was, lol.

I was 11 when I started, and my older daughter was 13. My stepdaughter was around 13, too.

I have sons so no help

My sister started at 8 and I started at 13, so my little sister started her period before I did lol

My mom started at 10, so she was worried about me, and freaked out about her...

My two SD's did. They started at 8 and 9. I hadn't spoken to them, and I am not sure if their mother had or not.

My mom freaked over my sister (age 8) she called the doctor, and apparently it's not uncommon... I didn't start until 13

Quoting C8linVilla:
