@ mom - these numbers are very disturbing . If correct, the age of on-set of puberty has dropped significantly over the last 100 years. I believe that has been generally attributed to improved over-all nutrition but this is getting scary. I have a queasy feeling about all the synthetic hormones in the water supply. Are you aware of any current research on this?

@kwojcik; The following link suggests environmental chemicals, especially BPA, which is found in plastics, tin can linings, dental sealants and even cash register receipts, and acts as a synthetic estrogen, a likely factor. It also addresses the effects of fluoride in the drinking water and the effects of this lowering the onset of female puberty in animals.

Five to eleven. My son seems to have had a wet dream at 5 yrs. I do the laundry so I get to know these things.

9-14 is considered normal for boys. If they begin puberty before the age of 9, it is considered precocious puberty.
