Puberty What is puberty? What can boys expect? What can girls expect? Why don't I feel good about my body? How is my brain changing? Why do I have
these feelings? Why do I feel
like I don't fit in? Why am I having
a hard time with my parents? What did I learn? Puberty is when a child's body changes into an adult's body. Girls start to
look like women Boys start to
look like men
Boys can
father a child Girls can become pregnant Each person's body
