Puberty Seriously Changes you...
The Different Changes in out Bodies
Body Image and Self Esteem!
You may also begin having strong
love feelings
for the opposite sex. Don't worry, this is completely normal! You might start this at a earlier, younger age. Or you might even not feel feelings for anyone at all. Young girls develop crushes for rock stars, teachers, friends older brother. It might feel weird

at the time, but don't worry this is still normal! If you devlope love for someone your own age, who you know, it may start to be creep in. You may experience the
of you feelings rejected, but soon or later, you realize that he isn't the person for you!

Social Changes
When it comes to socializing, things can get difficult. This usually means that you tend to lose a lot of
self esteem
. Here is some advise from the book 100% Me "When it comes to attracting the opposite sex, it's important to have a healthy self esteem than big breasts. No one is ever going to look like Barbie, or the air brushed models in magazines, so learn to love who you are" If someone doesn't like you for who you are, then move on, its no point trying, if this person is not interested in you. Be yourself, it will be much more easier to attract both
that way.

Puberty Survival Guide!
simply means
, becoming a woman, growing up, reaching
sexual maturity
Puberty is when your emotions and physical body change from a girl to a woman. The changes happen because of
sex hormones
produced by the
in girls.
You can expect this change when you are between nine and thirteen, but many start younger or a lot older than that. There's nothing wrong if yours happen earlier or later. So don't expect to develop exactly the same speed as your mates. When your body is ready to begin puberty, your
pituitary gland
(a pea-shaped gland located at the bottom of your brain) releases special
. Depending on whether you're a boy or a girl, these hormones go to work on your skin,
sex organs
(reproductive organs) and hair. It also affects your
and moods. So, this little presentation will let you understand puberty, and will help you go through the changes, and will keep you prepared.

Hormones that were
suddenly awaken and signal your body to enter puberty. You might think this doesn't mean a lot, but hormones cause the changes that are
with puberty. It can start as early as 8 years of age to as late as 13 years of age. The sequence of puberty – from
breast development
to complete
physical maturation
– may take a year and a half or last as long as 6 years. You may have heard that girls mature more quickly than guys, and that is somewhat true, since girls usually enter puberty about 2 years earlier than boys. Below is a general time line for physical changes that occur during puberty (for girls):
Puberty Event Age at which it happens
Growth of breasts 8-13
Growth of P
ubic hair
Body Growth 9 1/2-14 1/2
First Period 10-16 1/2
Underarm Hair 2 years after pubic hair shows up
Around the same time as underarm hair
Physical Changes
1. Comfort. Make sure you feel comfortable with your body and the idea of growing up.
2. Communication. Communicate with any adult and they will tell you what to do when.
3. Knowledge. Make sure you understand how and why everything works.
Hope these tips were helpful! Make sure to always inform a trusted adult of any situations.
