If she has pubic hairs and is developing then yes it is very likely she is going to be an early starter. One of my friends was 8 when she started her period, if I was you I would sit and explain periods (as much as I could to a 8 year old) it might be next week or it might be 2 years away but either way it's best to preper her for the enevitable. Bless her.

She doesn't have any hairs as yet, and I have sat with her and explained the changes that happen and why and that she must go straight to a female adult if it happens when I'm not there ie school , dads house , grandparents , told her its normal it happens to us all and it's nothing to worry about
