Daughter of 8
I want to know if it is true that girls with a weight of 40kg start to having their period? The reason being that my daughter is only eight years old and she weight 35kg already.

A clinic sister told me to watch her weight, as she will start having her first period at the weight of 40kg.

Please respond, I'm a deperate mother.
