ok so my son is 7, turned 7 in aug. get informed me the other day he is "growing hair on his junk" sure enough, a patch of blond hair in the base of his testies......he has gone thru a major growth spurt this summer, hair on his arm pits, legs, arms, hes gaining self confidence, but no change in his voice (that I have noticed)
Im aware there is no "normal" lol but is this beginning signs of puberty? should I make him a doctors appointment? is this too early? should i talk to him about it? I mean I am SOOO confused lol

I would have a check up just to be sure and put your mind at ease. That is really young - but I would bet everything is fine!

Wow, i wonder how this will be for me when my son is older...hopefully not with 5years :-) But i mean even 7years is still so young. If it would be my son i would take him for a check up even though i dont think its anything to be worried about.Good luck

I was thinking the same thing, I figured it would be like 12-14 he would begin to go thru this, not so young! I read online about kids at 5 but I thought it was old wives tales....thank you for your response!

Wow, kids r starting puberty so young...my son was 9 when he started these things. If your worried i say check with your doctor. Otherwise its normal...my son started with the things u describe at 9 but his voice is just now changing and he is 12.
