What signs of puberty should I look for in my daughter?


The signs of puberty in girls are typically clear. In fact, girls may even begin the stages of puberty when they are just eight or nine years old. Here are a few signs to look for:

– A sudden growth spurt
– Accumulation of weight on the hips and thighs
– Development of breasts
– Acne breakouts
– Increase in body odor and sweat
– Underarm hair growth
– Menstruation begins
– Leg hair may grow longer, prompting the desire to shave

Of course, you cannot see all the changes. Some are not so obvious: mood swings, interest in romance, and anxiety. You might have to ask about these symptoms.
