Parents and Puberty(Talking to Kids About Puberty, Its not to have " the talk " as one grand summit but rather as a series of talks..)

capable of sexual reproduction to enable fertilization. It is initiated by hormonal signals from the brain to the gonads : the ovaries in a girl, the testes in a boy.
No two people are exactly alike, but one thing everyone has in common is that we all go through Puberty.
No differences were found between puberty from Single - parents families and those from unclear families , or between boys and girls.
Usually, puberty starts between ages 8 and 13 in girls and ages 9 and 15 in boys. When your body is ready to begin puberty , your pituitary (Say; Pih-Too-uh-ter-ee) gland(a pea-shaped gland located at the bottom of your brain) releases special v Depending on whether you're a boy or a girl, these hormones go to work on different parts of the body.
At about the same time, the adrenal glands of both boys and girls begin to produce a group of hormones called adrenal androgen. This hormones stimulate the growth of pubic and underarm hair is both sexes.
Changes for Boys and Girls:
For Boys
The hormones travel through the blood and tell the testes (Say: TES-teez), Testosterone is the hormone that causes most of the changes in a boy's body during puberty and men need Sperm to be able to reproduce ( be the father of a baby).
In the Girls
These hormones target the ovaries ( Say : OH-vuh-reez), which contain eggs that have been in the girl's body since she was born .
The hormones cause the ovaries to start  making another hormone, called estrogen. Together , these hormones prepare a girl's body to start her periods and be able to become pregnant someday.
Changes can feel kind of strange
Just as those hormones change the way your body looks on-the outside, they also create changes on the inside .
During puberty, you might feel confused or have strong emotions that you've never had before. You might feel overly sensitive or become upset easily.
Some kids their tempers more often and get angry with their friends or families. They also may feel anxious about how their changing body looks.
Parent's Role:
Welcome to Puberty, the time when kids sprout up, fill out, and maybe even mouth off.
Puberty was awkward enough when you were the one going through it, so how can you help your child through all the changes.
Its best not to have "The Talk" as one grand summit but rather as a series of talks, ideally beginning when your child is young and starting to ask questions about body parts. Each time you Talk, upon your child's maturity level and interest in the topic.(continue....)
