Adolescence is considered a turning point in the development of each child. This is due to the fact that it is at this time that the maturation and the complete clearance of the organism take place.

During this period, a hormonal jump is observed in the child’s body due to the enhanced work of the endocrine system, which can affect the mood and emotional state of the adolescent.

This difficult adolescence

Traditionally, adolescence lasts about three years. In boys - from 13 to 16 years, in girls - from 12 to 15 years.

By this age, every child already has basic hygiene skills: he can keep his body, hands, hair, clothes clean, he already knows how to keep his living room clean, his workplace,which is very important in the period of active growth of the organism, when all systems are activated.

Also by the adolescent period, the child must learn to comply with the daily regimen. It is especially necessary for adolescents, as it helps to avoid overwork and overstrain of the nervous system, which can be disastrous during puberty, when the body spends a lot of strength on growth.

The day of the teenager should be planned so that the child has time to attend classes, relax, visit sports sections and extra classes. A teenager should sleep at least 7-8 hours.

 

How to talk with your child about changes in the body?

Parents should be mentally prepared for the onset of adolescence in a child, they should tell the child in advance about what will happen to him, should stop paying special attention to changes in the reproductive system (it’s worth talking about boys and menstruation).

Often, the child before the onset of puberty may ask parents questions about what menstruation or wet dreams are, these questions are an excellent reason to talk with the child and explain to him what all these changes are for.

If the child does not show interest in these issues, try to interest him yourself. Give him an encyclopedia for the holiday, where he will be told in detail about the adolescent period, invite him to watch a movie or a special TV show about puberty.

It is important that the child is ready for change, as if the child is unprepared, some physiological phenomena can cause him anxiety or even neurosis.

Parents must be prepared to answer all questions about puberty. Also, older brothers and sisters who have already experienced adolescence and can share their experiences can actively participate in conversations about adolescence.
