The onset of puberty is continuing to drop among American girls, with many girls as young as 7 and 8 now showing the beginnings of breast development, new research shows.
Rising rates of childhood obesity -- long linked to earlier sexual development -- may be to blame, experts say.
Does the increase in early puberty among girls concern you at all? How old were you (or your daughter) when you started to develop?
Are you "Sleepless in Seattle" (or somewhere else)?
