actually there are a few in the "Developement" section that have got me thinking...
the ones about girls in pre-puberty & breast development. YIKES! my dd is 6 & those things haven't began to cross my mind yet! is it me, or do girls develop quicker these days?? i read somewhere that it may have something to do with the hormones that are injected into beef. girls seem taller, bigger, and develop quicker. scary.

Me too! But I thought it was the bovine growth hormone that cows are given and that comes out in milk that was responsible for our girls' early development. This is why I always buy organic milk. But maybe I need to look into a natural butcher as well. Truthfully, we don't eat all that much red meat. Probably about two or three times per month. We eat a lot of chicken, though.

I was 15 years old when I got my period. My niece was 9!
