Over the past decade puberty has been showing up earlier in girls, and even earlier in African American girls. Precocious puberty — the onset of signs of puberty before age 7 or 8 in girls and age 9 in boys can be physically and emotionally difficult for kids and can sometimes be the sign of an underlying health problem. On this episode we discuss precocious puberty in detail and look at the possible contributing variables as well as the effect it can have on young girls.
