Social side of puberty

As you get older, you may talk to your friends more than your parents. This is natural. The more you do something, the easier it gets. In the same way, the more you talk to you parents, the easier it will become.

As you enter this new chapter of life, you may find it more difficult to connect with your parents. This is a normal part of puberty, and it may just mean you need to make more of an effort to be kind and respectful towards your parents. Just remember, your parents were once your age too!

A crush is a word used for someone you really like, in a boyfriend/girlfriend way. They are usually of the opposite gender. If you feel this way towards someone, this is just a sign that you are growing up and becoming more mature. Crushes may include friends, classmates and neighbours.

During Adolescence, it becomes more important for you to fit in with your peers.  However, if you find yourself doing something just because others are doing it, and it makes you feel unsafe, make sure you think twice.  Remember, you always have the right to decide against something you don't feel comfortable doing.  It can be hard to say no to your friends, and if this is proving difficult, think what your family would say if they knew you were in this position.  Always be the one to be strong and make the right choice.

When you are an adolescent, you may start to change the way you think. This may include working out what you want and what is needed to achieve this.  This could also include understanding how your decisions could affect other people.
