That must have been challenging for her to be that developed at seven, knowing how sexualised this society is. Her parents wanting to protect her from perverts probably had to keep her locked up and away from her friends. Could they have handled it differently?

  • I was in sss1 when I started growing real boobs and was looking forward to it cos everyone around was growing boobs

  • My daughter started growing tits at 7 too, I panic at first and had to take her to a pediatrician who said it was normal. But we were lucky it didn’t grow fast and big, she’s almost 12 now and it’s still normal, she doesn’t even fit into a bra yet. Once we accepted it I just taught her about her body and all she needed to know and she’s proud of herself. She lives a normal life like every child her age. of course we don’t have to run around naked simply becks we are kids as we know our privates early and learned to keep them private. But we played and and ran around doing all the child play with fun.
