A Public Matter
Puberty is something natural everyone goes through, so there’s nothing to be ashamed of, but there’s also no reason to make it the talk of the town. Hitting puberty is a tough time for kids – who are growing up and becoming teenagers – but it can also be an emotional time for their parents, who realize their babies are no longer babies.
So, when this mom learned her kid started puberty, she felt compelled to call some of her neighbors and the other moms from the neighborhood and let everyone know her little boy was growing up. Yes, it’s pretty bad, but since he was a 12-year-old boy going through puberty, he probably overreacted!
