Emotional changes during puberty

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

Besides the many physical changes that occur during puberty, many emotional changes take place as well. Relationships with others may begin to change. Children begin to separate more from parents and identify with other children of the same age. Children begin to feel self-conscious about their bodies and the way they look. Comparisons begin with self and other children. One must remember that everyone goes through puberty at a different pace and eventually, everyone catches up. During this time, children also become more aware of their sexuality.
