Puberty is the period where the body develops from the body of a child to the body of an adult. It varies from person to person when puberty begins. It is not something that you can influence or have control over.
Puberty is set in motion by hormones. Hormones are chemical messengers that are produced by the body. The body’s hormones influence how your body functions in a variety of different ways. For example, through controlling your sleep, your blood pressure and your moods.
Knowing that you are coming into puberty can lead to different emotions. Some people can not wait for puberty and think it is fun and exciting. Other people might think that it feels confusing or difficult.
