Graber, Julia A.; And Others
Child Development, v66 n2 p346-59 Apr 1995
Considered variations in pubertal timing, specifically age at menarche, and association with various antecedents, including heredity; weight and weight for height; stressful life events; family relations; absence or presence of adult male in household; and psychological adjustment, in 75 premenarcheal adolescent girls. Found complex interactions of biological and psychosocial development that may account for variation in pubertal timing. (DR)
