Would you all say your daughter's diets are healthier than the average kid today? Maybe that statistic just isn't true when the girls are having a healthier diet (the statistic about girls starting earlier than their mothers). I do think my daughter, though her face looks like me a lot, has a slightly different body type than me. Still, I think she'll make it another year before she starts her period.
Thanks for all the responses. It's very interesting to read.
to be very honest with you i think diet plays a v. small part in this. when you say diet you are really talking about the chemicals that we are ingesting right?
i think diet is just one tiny part of the ingesting. there is just too much around us to be able to pick out one variable and blame it on that.
look at how many pee plastic. even with good 'things' like diet, environment there are traces of plastic in their pee.
unless you lived off the grid in far off remote places.
dd has her fathers body type and emotions and food habits. but she looks like me. if she follows in my footsteps she should start her periods in 3 months time. she is there with all signs of puberty except periods. including mood swings. i now have a starter pack just to be safe. quite a few girls in her 5th grade class have started. some in 4th. i too started in 5th.
i look like my mom. have body type like my dad and temperament like my dad. in his family the girls started later. but i followed my mom's girly health to a T.
i have no idea what its like on exh's side, since it was all boys and mil cant remember it was so long ago. she cant remember if she started at 13 or 17.
