Puberty

Say: pyoo-bur-tee

Everyone goes through puberty, even though it sometimes feels like you're the only one! It's that period of time when your body changes and matures, turning you from a kid into an adult. Although everyone is different, puberty usually starts between age 8 and 13 for girls and age 9 and 15 for boys.
