"Puberty's Wild Ride: The Ups and Downs, Ins and Outs, Zigs and Zags of Growing Up". Puberty is one of the most exciting and confusing times in a young person's life. This publication is a 134 page booklet, produced by the Family Planning Council, for pre-teens and teens, that is meant to take some of the scariness out of growing up.
Through games, illustrations, exercises and text, "Puberty's Wild Ride" explores what's going on with a young person's mind, body and emotions. It explains how puberty's changes can affect the way youth relate to family and to boys and girls their own age. It also offers tips that can help smooth out the bumpy spots in the road from childhood to adulthood.
