The teenage years can be awkward - bodies change, and sweat and spots become part of life.

Growing Up has a supportive but straightforward approach that gives you the knowledge ahead of time. Why do boys' voices break? How do hormones work? From managing spots to mending a broken heart, this book has the answers and advice for parents and kids on discussing potentially embarrassing topics.

Inside this book, you’ll find:

-An overview of the main areas of growing up, including mental and physical health, social media, relationships, exams and money

-Clear, step-by-step explanations to support parents and children in tackling important issues such as puberty, gender, self-expression, digital life and so much more

-Simple and colorful graphics to make these subjects seem a little less scary 

As well as the biological facts of puberty, this book is bursting with tips on how to navigate the emotional and social challenges of growing up - from relationships and confidence to cyberbullying and alcohol. It gives you the tools to understand and tackle challenging subjects, including discrimination, drugs, and difficult life events, and practical, straightforward guidance on mental health issues such as anxiety and low self-esteem.

Growing Up has also been updated so it contains content on contemporary topics such as post-pandemic mental health, eco-anxiety, online hate, and the impact of influencers.
