Puberty and Your Son

Puberty and Your Son

As a parent, it is important to talk to your son about puberty and expected body changes before they occur.  Parents may feel awkward at times discussing puberty with their children, but being open and honest about puberty allows room for discussion and questions. If you treat the idea of puberty awkwardly then your child will likely follow your lead.  Like anything in life, it feels better to go into a new situation prepared, and puberty is no different for your child.

For more information about the changes puberty bring and how to discuss them with your son, check out the following resources: the book ‘Guy Stuff: The Body Book for Boys’, and also from Healthy Children’s website through the AAP by clicking here.
