Puberty Changes

Puberty : changes that occur as little children become young adults and end up
allowing for reproduction to place.  There are many physical and emotional
Boys begin physical changes in puberty around 10 years old and finish
physically growing around 18-19. The male hormone responsible for puberty
changes is Testosterone.  It is produced in the testicles and causes changes in
boys such as increase muscle mass, square/broad shoulders, increased size of
voicebox = deeper voice, facial and chest hair, and increased penis size.

Girls begin physical changes in puberty between 8-10 and finish generally
around 15-16.  The female hormone responsible for puberty changes is
Estrogen.  Is is produced in the Ovaries and causes changes in girls such as
the first menstrual cycle aka menarche, breast growth, and wider hips.  

Both genders actually have both hormones but obviously, boys should have
more testosterone and girls should have more estrogen.  Realistically, most
changes boys and girls go through during puberty are the same.  Actually, if
you combine the changes that are the same with boys and girls and the
changes that are different, boys actually go through more changes however,
the changes girls go through or more major.
