One of the most important reasons I wrote my series of books for boys, and separately for girls, is to educate them about reproduction. From the first book written for 5-7 years old, through the next four books, I am carefully guiding their learning to achieve my mission.
As puberty begins, both boys and girls will notice a change in their skin because of the impact of rising testosterone in their body.
Puberty begins in a similar way in boys and girls. A change in body odor is a sign that will be obvious to you as your son enters puberty and is also a beginning sign in girls.
You have probably noticed that your adolescent wants to know “why” before they decide to cooperate with restrictions imposed on their life. During this time when there are lots of restrictions coming their way to protect them from the Coronavirus (COVID-19), it may be helpful to explain to your adolescent why the restrictions are recommended.
