From the Kidspot article, Help your daughter become confident about her body

"A young girl's body goes through massive changes during puberty, the only time her body goes through bigger changes is during the first year of life. It's no wonder then that your daughter may be struggling to cope with the new body she has, it's likely she'll feel a little self-conscious or even embarrassed about it. For some women these feelings can last a life time. Help your daughter become confident in her body during puberty and you could instill great values for the rest of her life."


Has your daughter shown any concerns about how she looks? How did you feel about your body changes during your own puberty?

Oh, and as I started entering puberty at 9 (!) I was only 10 when I started to develop hips and breasts... I knew from the age of 7 what to expect my body to go through so I wasn't freaked out by it.

I went through a chubby stage at about 13-14, but I was lucky to have a Mum who wouldn't stand for any dramas of any kind. She always taught my brother and I that we needed to be sure that how we looked on the outside reflected the person we are on the inside and that "who" we are and not what we look like counted more than anything else... I also was lucky enough to be a confident young woman who never followed the trends because I didn't want to be a "follower"... I have more issues with how I look now to be honest after three babies and weighing a ridiculous 49kilos!!!

I should also point out that while I don't have girls, I do make sure that my boys know that they are not to judge someone by their looks as such. I also am careful about what I let my big boy see so that he isn't feed unhealthy images of how he should look or what women should look like... my Mum was OCD like that and I guess I have carried it on.

we have a few years before we need to worry about puberty but the instant that she started school she had concerns about her looks, her size etc :(

I don't know about puberty yet but already my eldest daughter (8 years) is concerned about her weight and what she eats. I am worried about how she will deal with puberty.

I have a few years to go before Miss 2 reaches puberty!   But I hope it all goes well.  I can't remember too many probs when I was a teenager.  I think I was an average developer, not too early, not too late.  No acne, thank goodness!  I was a skinny little thing back then, and probably wished my boobs were a bit bigger!

Luckily my daughter is only 8 yet. I do, however, have nieces who are undergoing puberty and are struggling with their body changes -- odour, shape, skin. We (their mum and I) emphasize that it's a natural phase and that their bodies will get over it and so should they. That there are certain things they can control -- proper hygiene, wearing the right underwear, et al. Plus, they're on their way to womanhood and becoming the gorgeous women (inside and out) they are intended to be.
