Re: My 8yo daughter is starting puberty
i think your docter may be a bit overly-concerned..i almost laugehd when i read that, newwer docters try to run as many unessasary/pricey tests as they can eitehr A. for money or B. to avoid being sued.. i prefer old-fashioned docters, theyre much less.. laughable.
your dughter sounds completly normal to me, according to my health class alot of girls hit puberty as early as 8, espeically now that all these staroids are being put into fast food, i never really ate much fast food..
there were atleast 20 girls in my elementry school who were already "developed" but i dont think x-rays are a bad idea either, if your docter is honestly concerned, its always better to be on the safe side, just dont worry too much.
i was 11 when i hit puberty, though my mom was 14, so she was surpised when i hit puberty, too.
im 16, but i only started getting my figure a few months ago, people think im a late bloomer, and by comparison i am, i know 11 year olds who look older than me right now
Please excuse any gramatical/spelling errors, I have a verbal disability.
