PBS Kids GO! It's My Life
Puberty

Discussion questions for kids to bring up with adults

What do you remember most about going through puberty?

Do you remember something really embarrassing from that time?

How did you learn about puberty back then? From your parents? School? Books?

What kinds of problems did you face? What was good about it, and what was bad?

What should I do if I have a really personal question or feel embarrassed about something having to do with puberty? What should I say? I'm worried I won't know all the ‘correct' terms and I'll sound stupid.

What do I do if:
    (for girls) I have an "accident" when I get my period?
    (for boys) I wake up and my sheets are wet?
