History of parental puberty can help detect problems of adolescence in children earlier in life. See how to mitigate problems of adolescence
The experience of the adolescent is very individual, each one experiences his own way, resulting from the sum of his personality with environment in which it lives, both family and social, and by the body's responses to all physical, metabolic and hormonal changes.
Knowing how to deal with all these changes is a complex art for the young people who are experiencing them and the help of their parents is of great value, whether listening, understanding and welcoming, whether sharing your own experience of being a teenager, or even getting ahead of the problems that may arise.
The influence of genetics on the symptoms of puberty
Some of the behaviors of the body have a hereditary tendency, and acne is one of them. Adolescents who have had one or both parents with a lot of acne are also likely to have them, so as soon as the first symptoms appear they should be referred to the doctor to begin treatment and avoid worsening of the condition, which when poorly controlled may lead to scars for life. In recent years, treatment has progressed a great deal, and the risks of physical and emotional sequelae are infinitely less than in the past.
The same thing happens with menstruation. Both the age of the menarche (first menstruation), and its characteristics, usually have family influence. Young people whose mothers have had a late menstrual period, for example, may have their anxiety reduced when they know that this may happen to them as well.
And the opposite is also true: mothers who had precocious puberty and consequently early menarche, changes of the body of their daughters, and, when necessary, under medical guidance, initiate treatment to delay it to a more appropriate time. Polycystic ovarian syndrome, which causes menstrual irregularities and acne, in addition to other physical changes, has a strong genetic influence, both on the part of the maternal and paternal families.
Body odors related to sweating can also be controlled when the history of the parents. It is normal that adolescents sweat more easily in adolescence than in childhood and that they come accompanied by characteristic odors, especially in armpits and feet. There are glands that become active at this time of life and that are responsible for it, but some families usually exude more odors than others. Once the parents have gone through this, they can guide their children to prevent them before they go through embarrassing situations.
Due to the rapid and intense growth of the body, the skin stretches and may appear the striae, both in the boys and girls. Men present more frequently in the hips and back, while women present in the hips, thighs and breasts. When parents know they have this tendency, they can guide their children to try to prevent them, with daily use of good moisturizing creams.
Divide your own experiences with your children, helping them to prevent risks, not only makes it safer as it can help them minimize the discomforts of adolescence. When it comes to heredity, the saying is right: "Son of a fish, goldfish is."
Almost every day , I hear many parents worried about the school they will choose for their children. From the moment they decide on their child's time attending school - for some as young as 2 - there is a kind of great conflict with "what will become of my child's future?" When someone decides to become a father and mother, the imaginary begins a movement to form an image for the person who is about to be born.
