I just saw on the news that a woman has been giving her daughter a shot since 7 years old to push off puberty. Her daughter is now 9. Is this something you would consider or do? I don't know if it's the same for boys, they didn't mention that.

I don't know how I feel about this at the moment but am interested in your answers.

It seems intresting that the insurance would cover something like that just for funsies.

I so would have gotten that shot when I was younger! Sorry but starting your period at 10 doesn't make for a great childhood..

It sucked so bad :( I didn't feel like a kid anymore. My hormones/emotions were all outta whack. My first 5 years were horrible. I would get so sick everytime and throw up. I had to hope that any plans I had didn't fall on my period.

But the chance of a pedo targeting YOUR child is extremely slim. my thing is, people need to stop "playinh god",you know

Quoting misslady80013:

I am on the fence. On one hand, I do think that's find of young and pedophiles is already a problem. More very young girls with more mature bodies may make this problem worse. You know what I mean?



I also understand the "Let nature take it's course." side. I would need more info. I have a son though.




Quoting xo.MommyW.xo:

Thats abuse, imo

 Um, no. That's a recipe for disaster. I don't believe in messing with hormones at that age at all (barring major medical issues).
