Puberty usually occurs during adolescence when children develop physically and emotionally into young men and women. Usually this starts to happen around 10 years of age for girls and age 12 for boys. But what if a younger child…say a 7 year old girl, or a 9 year old boy begins showing signs of puberty? This is called Precocious Puberty and it can be both physically and emotionally difficult for children. It can also be the sign of an underlying health problem and affect the child’s development in the long term. In this program we will help viewers better understand precocious puberty, the history, the symptoms and the advances made in treating it. (2103)
