Hi

 

I'd have word with your Dr - girls start developing at all different ages, and can start periods as late as 16, but the average is 13. They say that daughters usually follow their mother's pattern, so if this seems late for your family, then maybe ask for an opinion on it?

Hiya

 

My daughter is 12 and a half and she has not started her periods yet, like your daughter, she is a stroppy little madam.  However, my Mum did not start her periods until she was 16.  The only thing that concerns me about my daughter is she is very overweight and just eats and eats. I try to give her all healthy food at home but she sneaks food at school and I know every chance she gets she eats all the wrong sorts of food.  She has started to grow pubic hair and is now wearing a bra.

nina, they say to only start worrying about puberty when they reach 16 and still show no signs, I really wouldn't worry about it yet! if she's stroppy that's probably a sign they'll come along someday soon!

Trouble is she has been stroppy for two years and Ive been expecting the period to follow

think I will have a chat with her and see how she feels I know she is unhappy that she hasn't any hair or started her periods like all her friends but don't want to upset her by taking her to the dr he will do blood tests and she has a real thing about needles

children aren't they a worry!!?

Hiya Nina

 

SNAP!  My daughter has been a little madam for as long as I can remember.  She is 12 years old and she speaks to me like a piece of dirt.  She looks at me like I have crawled out from underneath a stone.  My Mum and Dad think she is spoilt (she probably is) but what I can not understand is I have a 11 year old boy and a 6 year old boy and they are completely the opposite.  Very caring and very sweet.  Both would do anything for me.  What is strange as well is that when she goes with her Dad to visit her other grandparents for a week each year (we split up about 7 years ago) she cannot wait to come home and cries because she misses me. (will not understand girls lol)  I know she loves me but she is hard work and she is really rude to her step-dad (my husband) and he has been nothing but nice to her.  How he has kept his hands off her is anyone's guess! lol

Hi Nina,

It is quite normal for puberty to take some years. I  really wouldn't worry at the moment, as Brokendoll says it can take until the age of 16 before your daughter reaches full puberty.

 

I have three daughters all of which started to get underarm hair at the tender age of 6/ 7. I was a little concerned at the time, however they developed no pubic hair until they were 10/11 and then started their peiods at 13/ 14, so in all it took almost 8 years to develope. I just sat them down and explained that every child goes through puberty at different ages and different rates.

 

 I explained that although they were young to have underarm hair it was normal for them and that they may just go into a very long slow development or may develope much quicker then the average child. I told them that this was just normal for them(got to be honest I did have fingers crossed that they wouldn't start their periods to young). My forteen year old is still only a 30 aa bra but she accepts that her breast are small and they may or may not grow any more, she really isn't that bothered!

 

Do hope this helps to reasure you, however if you are still worrid perhaps talk to your gp in confidence, he/she can then reasure you or give guidence.

 

Best wishes Camomile

I say lucky her! We all know the horrors of bikini line hair(waxing, ingrown hairs) and from the sounds of it she might be one of the lucky ones and not develop too much of the darn unsightly stuff!!

  My poor teenager got her periods at ten and developed far earlier than her peers and was so embarrassed.I felt so sorry for her. Kids grow up so quickly these days as it is, and once you get your periods you have them for a very LONG time.Tell her to enjoy this time of being hairfree, period free and  carefree!!! They'll come soon enough.

Hi Nina

Sorry this is a bit personal but somtimes the daughters will develop at the same speed their mothers did. My mum only started her periods when she was 19 years old, in turn I only started mine when I was 16/17 yrs old. I was late developing the same as my Mum. I would remember when my girlfriends would want to go shopping in town after school finished to buy bras etc, and I was alsways upset because I had nothing to put in the bra. Whereas now I am bigger then my friends. Werid eh?.

Love Kerry
