Grow With These 7 Facts about Puberty in Girls and Boys

2. Changes Aren’t Just Physical

There are many emotional changes that happen during puberty as well, according to Menstrupedia.com (aimed at girls for healthy periods). One of these changes is becoming “overly sensitive” about your physical changes. You may have less patience or feel depressed, adds the source.

Puberty is sort of a bridge between childhood and adulthood and some kids feel lost, adds the site. This could lead to young people searching for their identity and breaking away from the family to spend more time with friends. You may also have worries about what this new stage of life entails, especially when those around you start treating your differently or expecting more from you.
