Let's face it. Hair growth at weird places when you least expected it, anyone?
Well - that seems to be one of the recent trendy memes about approaching puberty offsite social media. The young generation is all crazy and whacky (mind you - these are 'jargons' of the youth) about this topic and it is a thing to be considered vary seriously. Yes. I mean it. VARY SERIOUSLY. (no typo error there).
The hype about this not-so-comfortable topic is nothing. It's just all this 'You've grown up putha. We are happy for you. Welcome to reality'.
The sorry state of all Pubertians (apparently, that's a term) is that they want to be left alone. You know this teeny-weeny private time of their own where they just want to figure out what in the world is wrong with themselves. Everything is in for a hyper state mix match plus the myriad of emotions that run wild suddenly - ah! It's so disturbing. They also have this one thing nagging in their head that - "my parents never give me my own space! They always want to know what's in my phone!"
Calm down Pubertians - because it's the same the other side as well. I am pretty sure all who have had their share of bringing up a Pubertian might relate. Random tantrums, sudden bursts of rage, sweet lies, sleepless nights, cravings and what not. And all those of you who still have to face that Pubertian - well buckle up : you've got an adult baby to handle!
It's the case with everyone and believe me, we've all gone through this phase (or are yet to go through). The bottom line is Pubertians 'think' they can take control of their lives but parents are often more than not 'sure' of the fact it's not the right time yet. There is still a long way to go and a lot more to learn before the young adult can take away the keys of independence.
Being a Pubertian and grooming a Pubertian is a heck of an experience. You can see the changes - the baby innocence fade away and mark of responsibilities approach on that face as years pass by.
As I sit here and contemplate on this, I wish I could be with my brother celebrating his 'crack-of-voice.'
