Think about early maturing boys versus late maturing boys….what are the benefits and drawbacks to each? How about girls…how do they benefit from maturing early versus late? What are the risks? How does early vs late puberty change our relationship with ourselves, our family, and our friends?

  • If you, personally, had a late maturing teen boy or an early maturing teen girl, how would you deal with the risks? What specific things or red flags would you look out for in his/her life, and what experiences or techniques would be best to assist him/her through the teenage years?
