Q.

Onset of perspiration age 6!!?!

My 6-year old daughter appears to have started perspiring. My 8-year old daughter has not, but is showing signs of breast development. I was not expecting this to happen so early, is it "normal" or can it be cause for concern? Apart from talking to them about it, and buying appropriate garb and deoderant, is there anything else I can do?

Early breast development from 8 years of age onwards is not abnormal in a child that is otherwise well.
