puberty and daughters

Hello.I have a 12 year old daughter and 8.5 year old daughter. My 12 yr old is from my first husband. She hasn't really started to develope to much(wispy pubic hair,no underarm,etc..). My eight year old has a different father and already developed pubic hair AND underarm hair. No period thank goodness,but this is causing some stress with my 12 yr old. Doctors say it is genitic and 8 yr old is very healthy. I tell my 12 yr old her time will come very soon,but people mature at different speeds.

I started at about 11ish.Anyone have similar"problem"?Thanks.

Re: puberty and daughters

The only thing I can say is every girl's body is different. I got my period at 10 1/2 while my bff got hers at 13. She's 4 years older than me but when I was 7 and she was 11, I already had boobs and butt and curves while she hadn't yet developed. Her doctors told her she was perfectly fine. As for mother and my Aunt, my mother is younger than her sister but my mom got her period when she was 9 and my Aunt got hers when she was 16!! Your 12 y.o's time will definitely come and before she knows it she's going to develop very fast!! Just remind her that it's completely normal.
