We must reflect on all characteristics of our human framework in order to understand personal transformation and self-esteem development.
By analyzing the body, one can start to understand more about the unexplained transformations that take place in certain people.
Take for example a young child that you know. At first, the child may have seemed friendly and sociable. At the time puberty starts, however, the child changes his or her way of thinking and the child’s behaviors may become insubordinate and problematic.
The child all of sudden starts to puzzle everyone around him, including their parents. The child starts experiencing the chain reaction that leads him or her to maturity.
The puberty phase is perhaps one of the most challenging transformations that the body goes through during its lifetime. The transformations occurring here almost cause the birth of a new person. The body is changing as different chemical reactions are taking place. Hormones, for example, are starting to form and alter its structure and its very nature.
In addition, the body is prepped by the change—preparing to reproduce, through the series of transformations. During this transformation phase, the child’s organs, like the lungs and heart, also change and develop. Sometimes the developmental rate can also speed up, tripling its rate in some cases.
What's more, the child’s thyroid gland, which is located in the region of the neck, begin enlarging. The thyroid forms as endocrines, and is responsible for assisting the endocrine system where hormones are produced.
This system is a specialized organ that produces, stores, and secretes the chemical substances we all know as hormones.
While the enlargement is taking place, the thymus begins to reduce in size. During this transformation, the muscles start to solidify, and new fat deposits form.
Many transformations occur during this growing phase, but once it stops, many other dramatic changes take place.
The bones become hard, and the skin alters. The child’s fat glands start to activate, which increases oily secretions, enlarging the pores. Signs of aging also begin during this change. This is why children have acne problems.
By understanding the body’s changes, we can work in harmony with the body to help it make the transformations effectively. At this time, one must stay physically active and prepared to perform other healthy tasks in order to grow healthy.
The hormones are also going through active changes during puberty.
First, the pituitary gland is responsible for triggering puberty. Human growth hormone levels rocket, as does the production of other hormones.
These are natural changes in the body, yet they are often taken for granted or misunderstood.
By helping your child understand the changes happening within their body, you can avoid the difficult teenager behavior that we have all come across at some point.
