The Effect Of Early Puberty On Adolescent Self-confidence?
Does early puberty make someone feel inferior to see their body like adults?
Hello, Adityaarga, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Puberty is a time when there are physical changes in children to become more sexually mature. Early puberty is puberty that comes earlier than it should, which is under 8 years for girls and 9 years for boys. Puberty is characterized by physical changes such as the growth of pubic and axillary hair, acne, first menstruation, breast growth, and changes in body odor.
The effects that often appear in a child experiencing early puberty are:
1. around over time so that he feels inferior and ashamed. If this situation is not understood and not treated immediately, the child can fall into severe stress to depression.
2. In addition to the present effects, premature puberty can also cause the following in the future: decreased self-confidence, less height than their peers, and emotional ups and downs.
It is better if you know a child who is experiencing early puberty, give him an understanding of the condition he is experiencing, and accompany and tell him ways to deal with his condition. If your child is very disturbed by the condition, you can take your child and check with the doctor to be given the right solution.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
