Growing Up

#puberty

When you're growing up you might make decisions without thinking of the impact it has on others and you might react badly when your parents question your actions. This is what can lead to falling out with them. Don’t worry, this is normal and puberty is hard for parents too.

As the journey from childhood to adulthood might start and end between the ages of 12 - 25 (adolescence), the emotional rollercoaster you find yourself on may continue into your twenties causing frustration to you and your parents.

This is normal and as you get older you may start to consider others and see things from their point of view. You may feel more able to take responsibility for your actions and there'll be times when you feel comfortable saying sorry to those around you and admitting mistakes have happened.

So what
is puberty?

#puberty

Did you know that from the moment you’re born, your body is changing? You very rarely notice these little changes as a child. As you get older, usually after the age of 9 or 10, your body starts to prepare for becoming a young adult. This is officially known as ‘Puberty’.

Yes, it can be a little scary, but just remember it happens to all of your friends too.
