Puberty is when children start to become adults. With hormonal, physical and emotional changes, a child undergoing puberty has a lot to deal with. A lot of people, especially parents, associate puberty with mood swings, aggression, rebellion and a complete shift in their child's personality. While hormonal changes does bring about a lot of emotional changes too, most of the time the 'moodiness' is because of the physical changes a 12-14 year old child is going through and is not comfortable sharing with parents or any adult. While puberty is different for person to person, says Dr Shuchi Dalvi, child psychologist, there are a few common signs of puberty in boys.
Puberty is the time when children need the support and understanding from their parents. As a parent, you need to talk to your child and help him understand that whatever he is going through is a normal rite of growing up and nothing to be worried, or ashamed of. Also, be there for your child and let them understand that he can approach you with any of his questions and concerns.
