okay seven letters you would go nope hey yes one team a nope you get a body why 26 letters down and sorry no one just a lid Wow is that really your word Austin seriously man why do you think Huberty because that's what we're learning about in health class next please and I know you're all really excited it's not funny man no that's so funny at all I just hope that's not going to be too embarrassing personally I don't think it's gonna be such a big deal yeah me neither my brother said yes he learned something and trust me he knows everything yes puberty can seem weird and a little uncomfortable and you probably have questions you're afraid to ask in fact you may have lots of questions since much of this is all new to you or maybe you just started thinking about it it's like right now so here's your chance to ask anything don't be shy I'm here to help anyway thanks for asking Austin puberty is a series of changes that your body and all your friends bodies will go through as you grow up it may seem a bit confusing or even a little embarrassing but don't worry it happens to everyone boys and girls and it's totally normal for boys you get taller bigger and stronger during puberty your penis and testicles will get bigger too even your voice will get deeper your skin and your hair may become oily and you may get pimples you'll also start to grow hair on your face in your pubic area and you may sweat more and develop body odor Wow looks like I've got a lot to look forward to what causes all these changes actually something really cool causes all these changes you see it all starts here in a tiny little gland located under the front of your brain called the pituitary gland as boys begin puberty the pituitary gland sends a signal to your testicles to begin making a hormone called testosterone the testosterone made by your testicles during puberty travels throughout your entire body and causes all the changes we just discussed girls go through this process too but the hormone in charge of their body changes is called estrogen this all seems pretty weird does every boy go through puberty like even my dad yes almost every boy in the world goes through puberty Xavier it's a hundred percent normal and nothing to be ashamed of and yes your dad went through it too and so did your uncle and Grandpa so if you have questions or need advice don't be shy about asking they can be a big help okay so what is all this start puberty for boys usually starts between the ages of 10 and 17 and lasts for a few years everyone is different though common and it doesn't matter when you start your body will decide when the time is right now the changes I talked about don't happen overnight actually they happen slowly over time some of the changes you can expect will happen to your private area your penis and your testicle will start to get bigger and longer and you'll begin producing sperm which is the male reproductive cell your testicles will start hanging lower and you'll begin to grow pubic hair at the base of your penis you'll also grow hair and a few other new places like on your face under your arms on your legs and sometimes on your chest your body shape is fill out and be more like a grown man your chest and shoulders will become broader your muscles will become more developed and you'll grow taller and you may gain weight your voice may also start to crack as it becomes deeper these changes mean you're becoming a man which all leads up to you being physically able to father children someday I remember a baby is a big responsibility and you're probably not ready for that yet I'm allowed to do so much more than I used to how do I make good decisions and stay out of trouble first of all congratulations Danny that's exciting you have more freedom and from your question you understand that that also includes more responsibilities remember learning to make the right decisions for you is an important part of growing up so when you're faced with the situation of a problem you're not quite sure how to handle try this think about all the different ways to handle it evaluate the solutions and predict what might happen act on the solution you think will have the best result see what happens that way you'll learn if your solution solved the problem in the right way I feel like the short stein class some goes even taller ooh am I ever gonna get taller yep you will now one thing that's helpful to keep in mind if you feel a little on the short side is that girls tend to mature faster than boys you're definitely going to get taller and you might even catch up to the girls in your class within a couple of years now how tall you'll be when you're grown up is harder to predict but a lot of this depends on your family if your parents are tall then chances are you'll be tall too and if they're shorter than you might be shorter too everyone is different though and grows according to his or her own schedule but in general boys tend to grow in spurts that happen off and on until your late teens just keep reminding yourself that you're developing on your own schedule which is perfectly normal my dad has a really deep voice when my voice changed to most likely you see Xavier just like your pituitary gland and testosterone tell the other parts of your body to grow they also tell your larynx or your voice box to grow and when your layering starts growing it causes your voice to start to change and sound deeper sometimes it does something called cracking as a deepest which can make you feel a little silly if it happens in the middle of obsessive but it just means that your larynx is still growing eventually your new voice will settle down and now who knows you may even start to sound like your dad my parents are always nagging at me take a shower every day why do I need to do this so you won't smell now no offense Danny but another thing your body does during puberty is jump-start your sweat glands you see we're all born with two kinds of sweat makers the first kind is called acronyms and they produce clear odorless perspiration that cools your body when it gets too hot even babies sweat like this because your eccrine glands start working as soon as you're born the second type of sweat glands is called APRA cream glands these get switched on during the hormonal changes of puberty and when the sweat they produce mixes with bacteria on your skin it can cause body also known as Beano a lot of appricate glands are located under your arms so this can be a really smelly area so what's the best way to deal with Bo take a shower or bath every day be sure to use soap or body wash another way to help minimize Bo and feel less stinky is to use a deodorant or a deodorant with antiperspirant to help keep body odor in check but what about my face am I gonna get pimples oh that's a pen you see the side sweat there's something else your body will start producing during puberty it's called sebum it's an oily substance that can cause acne also called pimples acne is really common during puberty and can't always be prevented even by washing all the time the best way to help keep your skin clear is to wash your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser and remember to use a moisturizer and one more thing sebum can make your hair look and feel greasy too so be sure to shampoo regularly to keep your hair clean and healthy and to keep it from being frizzy try using a light conditioner and a wide toothed comb when your hair is wet washing it every day or every other day is best for most hair types but do I really have to brush my teeth twice a day yes actually you do brushing helps keep your teeth healthy and clean and more importantly it can keep you from having Dragonbreath so remember the best way to avoid Dragonbreath is to brush your teeth properly every morning and every night with a good toothpaste what about shaving when do I start doing that that depends like everything else with beautiful hair growth varies from person to person most skies start growing some hair on their face at about 16 and you'll probably spot it on your upper lip or chin first but keep in mind that it can happen sooner than that for you and if your dad has a thick dark beard then chances are you will too so when you think you're ready to start shaving talk to your dad or an older brother and ask them to show you the ropes shaving could be a little bit tricky at first so it's nice to practice with someone who's been doing it for a while and be sure to have your own razor that's definitely a safety month just remember like anything else you'll get better at shaving with practice plus your beard will probably grow faster and thicker as you get older so you may have to shave more often as an adult I can't believe I'm asking this but sometimes my penis gets hard what's that all about no need to be embarrassed it's supposed to do that when your penis gets hard it's called an erection erections are 100 percent normal and happen when the blood vessels in your penis fill with blood there are lots of causes for actions even if you aren't thinking about girls or sexual things sometimes they can happen for no reason at all which can be a little nerve-racking depending on where you are but don't worry too much if you get an erection in public they aren't as noticeable as you think and they usually go away fairly quickly okay but if erections happened for no reason why am I getting them at all as embarrassing as they can seem right now erections are an important part of the male reproductive system one of the biggest changes your body goes through during puberty is that your testicles begin to produce sperm which can fertilize a female's egg in order to make a baby but what about size does it matter how big my penises nope not at all penises do vary in length and shape from person to person but not as much as you may think the size of your penis has absolutely nothing to do with how manly you are or whether you can become a father one day so don't worry about it sometimes I'll wake up and my pajama bottoms are sticky is that normal some people call what you're describing a wet dream or what your health teacher calls a nocturnal emission wet dreams happen when you ejaculate in your sleep you won't know what's happening and it's not always caused by dreaming about girls or sexual things it just happens most boys will have wet dreams at one time or another especially during puberty so there's nothing to get upset about plus he'll probably grow out of it as you get older don't have to talk to her about all the stuff listen it's really up to you I know what's happening to your body can seem embarrassing but it's a normal thing that every guy goes through and of course your mom doesn't know what it's like to go through everything you're experiencing but she does understand why and how it happens so if you feel comfortable talking to your mom about the changes you're seeing and feeling in your body Pingree she may actually surprise you with how cool she is about it if you prefer not to talk to her though that's fine too if it makes you more comfortable then talk to a stepparent your dad an older brother a friend's dad or another adult you trust what can I do to stay healthy while my body goes through all these changes the three things you need to do during puberty are eat properly exercise and get plenty of rest select a healthy range of foods that will help you get all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs and minimize junk food eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables proteins like meat milk eggs and beans and complex carbohydrates like whole wheat breads pastas and cereals another way to be healthy as you're growing into your new body is to exercise every day try going for a walk riding your bike or dancing to your favorite song it will keep your body strong and healthy and it's a lot of fun too and most importantly get plenty of sleep about eight to nine hours every night that way your body has lots of energy for the next day what if I have more questions that come up who should I ask the best place to start is to talk to your mom dad or another adult you trust it can be your aunt a friend's mom your grandmother or an older sibling who's in there and done that I know that asking questions about puberty may seem a little embarrassing at first don't be afraid they've all been due puberty themselves so when you have questions don't we start the conversation trust me you'll feel better after you do and you'll feel good knowing that the people you love and trust can be there to help for mark Wow [Applause] Hey nice work [Applause] you
