So, now we are talking about the thing we have all been looking forward to: Puberty! What is it? Well, Puberty is the stage in every child’s life when they experience physical and mental changes by which their bodies will overtime grow in an adult’s body. During Puberty, Hormones are the ones that will make sure you start growing. Hormones are the chemicals in your body that will cause mood swings, intense emotions, crushes on others, and will help your body grow into an adult.
Some people are uncomfortable with learning about Puberty, and that’s OK. But everyone will NEED to know about what happens during Puberty. Why do we have to learn about this? We have to be prepared for what is coming ahead of us so that we don’t feel like there is something wrong with us. A lot of kids, as I know from experience, are blocking their ears whenever a private part is mentioned in a conversation. The Private Parts shouldn’t be words you have to be afraid of; you shouldjust be able to say it comfortably. You are going to mention them to your parents, so why be afraid?
Everyone feels differently regarding learning about Puberty. Some people feel uncomfortable about learning this in a group environment, and others might feel thatlearning about Puberty is good because you can be prepared. These are two sides of the issue. It doesn’t matter what you think about Puberty because; we all go through it. I personally feel that learning about Puberty is good because we will be able to know what we should expect when we do get to that stage of life.
As you know, we are all different. No human is exactly the same. We don’t all start puberty at the exact same time and age. For some people, they may start at nine. For others, they may start at fifteen. Whatever your age, Puberty will happen and you will experience it. An interesting fact you might know is that girls start Puberty before boys. This doesn’t mean that they will go through Puberty faster than boys, they only started before.
Girls go through Puberty earlier than boys because girls tend to optimize brain connections before boys. Boys go through Puberty later than girls because boys tend to optimize brain connections after girls. If you realize that you or your best friend has started Menstruation (another name for Period) before you or after her, don’t feel left out because of this. If you realize that your best friend or you have developed facial hair before you or after him, don’t start getting fake beards to stick on your face.
We all grow at different rates, which is completely normal. You will have your whole life to mature and go through Puberty. So don’t wish your life away. You need to Demonstrate Patience. How are you feeling about our current U.O.I? Do you enjoy learning about Puberty?
