There will be a time in the tween years when your boy will start to grow to be a man. This period can be complicated as young boys are likely to feel overwhelmed, confused, anxious and sometimes embarrassed at the rapid changes. While young adults may not always rush to their parents for advice, do not stay aloof.
The teenage years are also called adolescence. During this time, teens will see the greatest amount of growth in height and weight. Adolescence is a time for growth spurts and puberty changes.
Usually, between the ages of 8 and 18 years old, your body starts growing and changing. These changes occur from head to toe and are completely natural as your body responds to increased hormones. All of these changes together are called puberty.

Puberty — it's a crazy time and occurs through a long process, beginning with a surge in hormone production, which in turn causes a number of physical changes. Every person's individual timetable for puberty is different. Below is an overview of some physical changes boys can expect during these years.
Ah, puberty. It can be a very interesting time in a guy's life, what with all the changes going on. In fact, it seems like every day something on your body grows bigger or hair begins sprouting somewhere.
A boy goes through many important changes during puberty. His body beefs up, his voice cracks as it changes, he becomes stronger, and he begins to mature sexually. Boys mature a little slower than girls. For boys, puberty begins at age 11 on average, although starting as early as age 9 or as late as age 14 is still considered normal.
Boys give little thought to muscles and beards when they are young. However, between the ages of 9 and 16, most boys will experience puberty. It will be a time of change, both physically and emotionally.
Adolescence, or teenage as we more commonly know it, is characterized by significant physical growth and changes. It is these few years where the child not only grows into adulthood physically, but also mentally and emotionally. Usually, these changes start occurring once your child hits the puberty age.
