My daughter is almost 11 and we are going through it too. We talk about hormones and changes alot. Loved some of the earlier posts about talking about the bad moment after things have cooled off and not excusing the behavior. I'm trying to teach her that hormones aren't an excuse they are something that we as women have to recognise and learn to have more control over our behavior even when we feel like ripping someones head off.

I started my period on my 9th birthday, so yes she very well could be preparing to start or has started puberty. Warning: Puberty is nature's way of letting us know that they are not the sweet squishy angels we believed them to be... and nature's way of helping us to prepare to let them grow up. I have all boys and puberty made me want to send them off to military school, but once my nieces started hitting that age, I truly learned what a lucky mom I was. My sisters would tease me because the boys were always into something or doing something and just being dirty, grimy, never able to stay clean boys. Then they hit puberty and became sullen, and snarky... but they had nothing on those girls. My nieces were little angels and I admit I was jealous of how sweet and funny they were at times when they were all little..... puberty evened the score... I just sat back and watched as my sisters sat around in a daze wondering where those precious little angels went and who replaced them with the look alike spawn... Hold on to your hat honey the fun is about to begin.. One good thing about it though, it seems once the hormones straighten out girls go back to being sweet and loving, boys stay all tough and manly after puberty.. Ah mom... we're men now... silly boys haven't figured out that they'll always be babies to me...

I was nine.... Later, I heard it might have been because of the hormones in milk. I was the only second grader with boobs. I went thru the change when I was 45. Start early. End early. No I take estrogen to keep my femininity.

My daughters mood swings started at 8. They were really bad at first (she bit a dime size hole in my arm) but have since calmed down. She still has mood swings but they aren't as bad. She is 11 now and has started blossoming. Menstration can't be too far away as her hips have started widening and when she forgets to where her training bras she is jiggly. Have to remind her every day of the school year because she says that they make her too hot at school.

they r girls and girls r just different it takes and patience and be stern with the mood swings let them know what is acceptable and what isnt tell your daughters what they r feeling is very natural and every girl goes thru it it is a phase and it shall to pass

I have two pre-teens and each started at about 10 1/2 and became evil minions that are mouthy as all get out. As stupid as this may sound I started getting as much organic and hormone free meats and milk products and this mellowed the "moodiness". We also discovered they were not sleeping enough.We added liquid vitamins, and warm turmeric, raw honey, milk to help with sleep, and exercise. We found dance worked best.
It also helps to have a really good sense of humor. Remember, that much like a bad case of diarrhea, this too shall pass.

Yes, and we're still there. My 13 year old has not started having periods yet although she has been spotting off and on for about nine months. She insists these are periods as well anything else she can differ with me on. In addition to that we are into preteen brain dead time. We refer to it as triple M, middle school mind mush. She has always been very responsable and a step ahead due to much older sidblings. Now her head is in the clouds.

My daughter started her periods in January (she just turned 11), but she's always been pretty even-tempered, except around her somewhat over-protective father...I certainly don't blame her for those attitudes...He's having more problems with all this than either she or I are!! ;)

My daughter was about 10 when I noticed changes. We don't get as much time as we thought we did! LOL. My son just turned 13 and has been quite moody for about 3 months now. Wow.... his changing me has shocked me more. I was prepared for the girl hormones not the boy ones ugh! I just teach my kids that I know their feeling are completely out of control and they are angry and don't know why but.... that doesn't give them permission to be mean to other people especially their MOM! You have to teach them how to deal with it, otherwise they will just go around letting their emotions control them and others!

i was one of 7 kids, with only one boy. thats 6 girls and my mom swore that we were all awful for a year or so before we started. so yes absolutley there are some hormonal issues for some time prior to the start of a period.

Be patient and pray alot(LOL), yes girls go through these changes early, I started my menstruation at 10, had pubic hair and breast at 8yrs old, my oldest daughter matured early also with the stink attitude, but they will grow out of it, probably around 17, good luck!!

Yes, yes and yes. My dear daughter had her first cycle the week after her 10th birthday and yes before it started the mood swings. Can't remember if it was years or months before as the body prepared for this she changed.
Good al-round nutrition is what is needed as her body will use extra nutritions during this time a bit like pregnancy in the sense that her body is doing all the usual for daily survival plus more. Mood swings are usually related to a lack in one or more nutrients. I'm not going to suggest any. I read and did some trial and error experiments on myself and my dd. Stress levels will also play a part.
Just love her and speak to her about what you both liked or disliked during the "bad" moment when she is calm. If you show her you understand what is happening and that you want to help her she will draw closer to you and will be more willing to confide in you and listen when you let her know she needs some time out. (said in a loving tone) We females can be so sensitive.
All the best.

We have been going through the same thing for the passed 11/2 years our daughter is now 10 and there is not much you can do to help them for when the as i call it tickle starts it is realy hard for them to deal with if you young girl has a favorite stuffed amimal that it big enough for her to use to help relive some of the urge and ride it out safetly is her room so no one can see her and she will not fell uncomfertable . This is what our daughter has been doing and it work for her .I hope this helps for the hormons will slow down in time.

Unfortunately, yes its more than possible. My daughter, now 12, went through the entire change not long after she turned 11. It was more than unexpected and after talking with her pediatrician, she reassured me that it was actually quite normal for her age now, due to the foods they eat, etc. And sure enough, my daughters friends all around the same age were all going through the same thing. It seemed so young to me, but like the Dr. said, all very normal. Good Luck to you..
