Generally... no. Typically your daughter will start 'around' the same time you did as a kid unless there are extenuating circumstances (like Jodi mentioned). I started my first period at a bit over 12. When my daughter started developing I could tell it was about a year younger than I did and.... yep, she got her first period at 11.5. Some kids ARE starting as young as 8-9 'just because' and some are starting as late as 16. I think 11-13 is fairly average.
