Sexuality

Health Topics

Puberty refers to the start of sexual maturation. Puberty is the time when the child experiences physical, hormonal, and sexual changes and becomes able to reproduce. At this time children grow quickly, get body hair, and have other body changes. Adolescence is the time of transition between puberty and adulthood.

Topics in sexuality and children include:

  • menstruation
  • premenstrual syndrome
  • sex education for boys and girls
  • sexuality and the disabled child
  • teen birth control
