The emotional signs of puberty
Puberty isn’t just about the physical changes. There are also a range of emotions a pubescent girl has to deal with as her body changes.
- Interest in boys, and relationships, and romantic feelings (which can be a touch confusing at first).
- Stress over body changes. She may be the first or last in her group of her friends to hit puberty and that may make her anxious.
- Excitement that her body is changing and that she is on the cusp of womanhood.
- Concern about new independence, including growing apart from her parents and leaving her childhood behind.
