Coping with Growth Spurts and Delayed Growth
This book gives teens the information they need to deal with huge differences they see in themselves and their peers. Why do some kids start growing much earlier than other kids? Why are some kids late bloomers, not even starting puberty until they enter high school? The book also discusses many of the medical problems that can occur with growth so that teens and their parents will be able to identify life-threatening conditions.
