My DD had "buds" when she was 5 & started her period at 9. I was concerned, but her dr. said she was fine - just developing at her own pace. She has 2 older brothers, and I have found with all of my children that giving them suggestions of ways to express their emotions is a big help. My oldest DS (who is an introvert) journals. My next DS listens to music or plays guitar (he can't really play, but he tinkers). And my DD, now 11, sings - all the time. My 10yo DD draws (and slams doors). They are all developing talents and expressing themselves. They're multi-tasking, and they don't even know it.
Taking it one day at a time.
