When did your son start going through puberty?

My son is 12.5 and puberty has hit with a vengeance........growth spurt, zits, ATTITUDE, pubic hair, dark hair on upper lip, lower voice, etc.

Doesn't this seem early for this to be happening?

  • No not at all. My son is starting to go through it and he is only 11. Also my best friends son has gone through it and he just turned 12.

    I think that 12.5 is totally normal for this to be happening.

    Good Luck
