PUBERTYWhat is puberty?It is transition period of an individual from childhood to adulthood.It is described as growth spurt: meaning Your body is growing and its happening really fast!
Ex. Sleeves are always getting shorter, pants are creeping up your legs, feet are growing, acne begin to grow, face is oily, body odor
You may be clumsy at times because your feet are getting bigger, shoulders become broader, hips getting wider, breast becoming bigger
Starts at ages- 8 and 13 yrs. for girls- 10 15 yrs. for boys
PITUITARY - a pea-shaped gland located at the bottom of your brain Pituitary releases hormonesTestosterone for boysEstrogen and progesterone for girlsEstrogen secondary sex characteristics such as breasts, widened pelvis, fat deposits in the buttocks, thigh and hip, less facial hairProgesterone helps regulate menstrual cycle and pregnancy
YOU UNDERGO A LOT OF CHANGES
Social changes during pubertySearching for identity who am I in this world?
Seeking more independenceLooking for new experiences involves risk-taking behavior
Influenced more by friendsStarting to develop and explore a sexual identity
Seeking more responsibilityThinking about right and wrong responsible actions/decisionsCommunicating in different ways
Emotional changes during pubertyShows strong feelings intense emotions at different time, brain is still learning how to control emotions
More sensitive to others emotion getting better in reading emotions of others but may also misread facial and body languageMore self conscious especially with how they look, may compare with others
Goes through a bulletproof stage on thinking and acting may think they are invincible and does not truly understand the risks associated with their behavior - decision-making skills are still developing and your child is still learning about the consequences of actions
Changes in relationshipsWants to spend less time with family
Has more arguments with parents
Sees things differently from others/parents
The teenage years, in short, can be an exasperating and worrying time for the parent. But not always. Teenagers can also be fun, loyal, and caring family members and friends.
Puberty can be quite a wild ride!
Why are boy-girl relationships not advisable at a young age?
YOUTH is a time of impatient desires!There is a need to wait for your body to mature.- typical boy takes 8 10 years to fully develop- typical girl takes 6 years to mature- as you develop things that you like and dislike change which affects food choices, dresses, and persons
- you should not let yourself be tied down to one choice- or you may regret later!!!
2. There is a need to be able to resist temptation.- young people are not really good at accessing risks- it is one of the last functions to develop in their brain- men tend to take risks and not consider the consequences- when a young couple forms a relationship early in life they are tempted to experiment with sexual acts- they may engage in sex without fully appreciating the consequences
3. It requires some maturity to distinguish infatuation from true love.Every teenager believes that they are in love at some point
It doesnt matter what anyone saysTeenage romances almost never last!!!!The young persons mistakes hormones for loveIn the Bible, love does not involve sexual desires
(I Corinthians 13:4-8) "Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails."
True love doesn't die out over time. True love lasts because it is a choice and not a hormone driven desire.
4. Few young people are in the position to take responsibility for their actions. If teenagers become parents, who will see that the baby is fed and clothed?Who will teach him proper behavior if his parents are little more than children themselves?
enjoy your youth and do not borrow future trouble
Young people, enjoy your youth. Be happy while you are still young. Do what you want to do, and follow your hearts desire. But remember that God is going to judge you for whatever you do. Ecclesiastes 11:9
