What happens to a boy during puberty? I'm have a son and would like to know what happens to his body. I need to educate him about his body. I am a single mom. I need some help.

Hi Kate~
Well, puberty can definitely stump the best of us. And it's wise to know what you're heading into before you're in the thick of things! So, have you ever thought of picking up some books on this topic? I know there's ones like Preparing for Adolescence that give a lot of info on this subject. Your doctor might also be a good source of help in this area-especially as it relates to physical issues. Or, if your son's dad is in the picture, I'm sure he could share some first-hand experience with both you and your son. So, just a couple thoughts. Hope they help!

You seem to have easy access to a computer and internet, why don't you just do a google search?

Thanks for all your help. I am a busy mom and don't know when I will get to the library or the doctors. It would be great if you could give me basic information. Thanks for all your help.

I also have a son and puberty is just around the corner! Dad is not in the picture. Since he was little I taught him the proper name of his body parts. I have my college biology book at home (don't ask why) and it has good diagrams and explanations. I also asked his doctor to talk to him about it on his last check up. He had an intro to sex ed at school recently. Poor guy! All he wanted was to hide under a rock than to go to school that week. But he got good info. Is better that he knows and understands what's coming. And I do not want to be a grandma anytime soon!
