    She doesn't even fully understand what she needs to protect herself against.  The only way to deal with this is not to tolerate this in any way, shape or form, stomp it out when we see it, and make clear to our kids that they are allowed to scream bloody murder and that they will be believed.

    I too was an early developing girl and I wore big shirts and even developed a limp so I wouldn't be looked at "like that" plus I gained a lot of weight.  I realized what I was doing when I lost the weight and heard myself thinking "gosh, you'd better drink a lot of milkshakes or else!"

    I then decided that it was better to be strong and fast and kick the shit out of anyone who threatened me.  But at the age of 34, I'd lost a lot of time.

      Kids need to be educated to protect themselves.

      And development doesn't matter.  I had nothing at that age, yet guys tried to do things.  Luckily, they only tried.

      So, girls need to be educated at an early age about self-protection.  I believe girls should be taught martial arts at an early age.
