I am home this summer because I got operated on .and my daughter usually goes to camp. But I kept her home because I am home. I try to be very open with my daughter about everything. But this past week she started telling me secrets about her friends on friend getting naked in her pool grabbing my daughter. She started first with telling me something in her head told her to get a knife and cut her arm.and she couldn't get it out of her mind . then she told me she is bored and don't want to live anymore. She started crying and crying for a few days saying she didn't mean it. I keep telling her forget it sometimes people feel like that .now she went to her first sleep over and told me she loves one of her friends she has feeling for her .she asked me is that OK am I gay ? I am getting worried .and she is happy but yet sad. She been crying and sometimes very angry! Also I notice her breast are getting bigger and she has pubic hair .please tell me something normal I afraid for her!

Sounds like part of it is pre-puberty.... And it sounds like some of it could be that something inappropriate happened which could be leading to depression... or whatever happened is adding to depression that may have already been there.

She is EIGHT. How the heck was she unsupervised enough for people to be getting naked in a pool?!

I would advise you to seek some counseling for the two of you as soon as possible to start sorting out the issues at hand.
