There are lots of ways you can support your child through puberty.
It's a hugely challenging time for your child and brings heaps of physical, hormonal, and emotional changes for them to cope with.
Puberty usually happens between the ages of 8-14 years old and is different for every child.
The average age for girls to start puberty is 11, while for boys, the average is 12. Some children will start earlier or go faster than other children.
As your child goes through puberty, they may have a sudden growth spurt. Their voice will drop, although this is far more noticeable in boys than girls.
