Not surprisingly, kids usually have lots of questions as they learn about puberty. Give your child the time and opportunity to ask questions. Then answer them honestly and openly. If your son shows signs of puberty before turning 9, visit the pediatrician. This may signal a pituitary problem or neurological issue, notes Dr. Issac. The doctor should evaluate your son as soon as you suspect a problem. Your genes play a role in yourheight. Look at your mom, dad, and other relatives to get an idea of your growth. But nothing is definite.You have to wait and see how it turns out. You can always ask your doctor if you have questions about your height. Use lighter weights. Your coach or trainer can recommend the right amount. Lifting heavy weights can cause injuries and then you'll have to wait until you recover before you can work out again. It helps to brush up on the subject. So before you answer your child's questions, make sure you get answers to your own. If you're not quite comfortable talking about puberty, practice what you want to say first. Let your child know that it may be a little uncomfortable, but it's important to talk about it.

How can my child look after their body during puberty? And this shouldn't be focused just on gender: It’s also important for boys to get along with and be tolerant of people with other differences. Teach him he should treat people with respect regardless of their race, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation. Encourage emotions. Boys finish their growth and physical development during this stage. Many may not develop facial hair until this step in the process. Most boys finish growing by age 17. Whenever your son enters puberty, you can expect to see some emotional upheaval. Increased testosterone coupled with social pressures may cause moody behavior, emotional outbursts and family discord.

During puberty, t here isn't just one event or sign that you're growing up. There are lots of them, including your body growing bigger, your voice changing, and hair sprouting everywhere. Some breast development, or gynecomastia, may occur in about 50% of all teenage boys, but it typically resolves by the end of puberty,” notes Dr. Issac. “If this becomes an issue physically or socially, suggest thatyour son talks with hishealthcare provider.” Stage 4: Puberty hits full stride Girls may begin puberty as early as second or third grade. It can be upsetting if your daughter is the first one to get a training bra, for example. She may feel alone and awkward or like all eyes are on her.

Every boy has his own likes and dislikes. Thinking about someone you like is a normal part of puberty. And if you don't have anyone you like that way, that's fine, too. It's all normal.One early spring day, an inexperienced honeybee named Beatrice hears about the most beautiful garden in the world, and she decides to go on an expedition, even if it means breaking a rule or two. When a change in the weather turns her outing into a near-disaster, Bea realizes that rules are for her own good. Let your child know that you're available to talk, but start conversations too. Discuss puberty — and the feelings that come with its changes — as openly as possible. Parents might feel embarrassed discussing these sensitive topics, but kids often are relieved to have them take the lead once in a while. Pituitary hormones travel through your bloodstream. They make the testicles (balls) grow bigger and start to release another hormone called testosterone that also helps make your body start sprouting hair in your pubic area, under your arms, and on your face. Breast development may also be a side effect of various drugs, including certain antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, anti-reflux medications, or due to exposure to external sources of estrogen or estrogen precursors, including ingested soy, and plant estrogen in lotions and/or personal care products, such as lavender or tea tree oil applied to the skin. There may be other possible environmental sources, some of which are under investigation, such as certain plastic containers. Additional Information:

However, if serious emotional problems arise — if your son doesn’t want to do the things he usually enjoys, or hang out with his friends or experiences a drop in grades — it’s important to have him evaluated with his pediatrician,” says Dr. Issac. A near doubling in the size of the testicles and the scrotal sac announces the advent of puberty. As the testicles continue to grow, the skin of the scrotum darkens, enlarges, thins, hangs down from the body and becomes dotted with tiny bumps. These are hair follicles. In most boys, one testicle (usually the left) hangs lower than the other. Pubic Hair Note that masturbation is normal and harmless, for girls as well as boys, as long as it is done privately. Instead, avoid teaching gender stereotypes in the first place. Offer a variety of toys and activities, even if they’re typically considered to be for girls. Provide books and movies featuring characters of each gender and in non-traditional gender roles, such as male nurses and female athletes. Smith SS.
