Description

What happens when a girl has the brain of an 8-year-old and the body of a 13-year-old? Just a generation ago, fewer than 5 percent of girls started puberty before the age of 8; today that percentage has more than doubled. Early puberty is not just a matter of physical transformation -- it's deeply psychological too, with effects that can put a girl at higher risk for behavioral problems as well as long-term health challenges such as obesity, depression, eating disorders, and even cancer. What can we do to help lead our girls through this major transition to live happy and healthy lives?
