Child easily irritated and frustrated. Is this hormonal?

My daughter is eight going to be nine in a few months...It has been noticed by family at certain times this past week she will cry at a drop of a hat, or get mad easily, when asking about what is wrong she says nothing..but you can see she is emotional...talking to my mother I asked her if it could possibly because she is hormonal due to maybe strarting the puberty and menstrual process...

Behavior alteration is common in children of this age group.she is in prepubescent age group. and hormonal changes are going to set in soon.
Try to be patient with her,indulge her in constructive games,spend time with her,try to find out any if she is having any problem in home or in school with teachers or friends.
Give her good nutritious diet.
Wishing your child good health.
