Hello mam, periods now a days set in at a little early age than it used to earlier due to various lifestyle changes so nothing to worry as far as the age of onset is concerned. Most of the girls have best growth rate just before onset of periods but even after periods girls continue to gain height though at a slower pace. Take care and all the best for your girl.
