Question

I'm only twelve. When my parents say that it's okay to tell them how far I am in puberty, I am embarassed about it because I think I am the furthest in puberty in my class even though I only 4 foot nine. Do you have any advice?


Answer

I don't understand what your parents are asking and what you are embarrassed about. Parents may what to know how far their sons have progressed because at certain points they want to make sure you understand your responsibilities. For example, when you gain the ability to ejaculate semen, you need to understand that you could get a girl pregnant, so therefore you have to be careful how you behave with girls.
