To Sam


I'm 11 and everyone is going throuugh puberty but I'm just trying to catch up. Are there any ways to make it go faster?

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately there is no way to make puberty go faster as people go through puberty at different times, it starts early in some people and a little later on in others.  You should find that as you get older you will not notice as much of a difference between yourself and other people.

There is some more information about puberty on the ChildLine website. If you would like to talk about this a little bit more you can give us a ring on 0800 1111, request a 1-2-1 chat through the ChildLine website or send us an e-mail.

Take care,
