I imagine it can happen at 11. Look how young some girls are when they start their periods. Maybe you could buy a book and go through it with him.

My husband says yes.  That it can happen even earlier for some.  So its that time puberty.  The voice is going to change and all the good stuff that comes with it.

My son was probably 11 I can not remember exactly.  Every child is different.  Just because phsically he is maturing does not mean emotionally he has to be ready.  I would say you need to have a talk w/ or w/ out a book or info from his Dr. I think his Dad needs to be there because if he does have questions you will not be able to answer them.

Good luck to you.

I agree... nicely handled. The unfortunate thing here is that boys (or girls for that matter) don't mature physically, emotionally or mentally at the same time so all of this is very difficult for them. It sounds like the communication line between you and your son is good.. keep that open and encourage him to ask questions. Good luck!

Yep, Sounds like your little boy is growing up. I would just sit down and try to talk to him a bit about it all. Just so he is prepared for everything else and won't be shocked.

I have also heard that the more emotional a boy is going into puberty, the more sleep he needs. Just something to keep in mind, encourage naps especially on the weekends. And it's ok for him to be going into puberty and still playing with toys. Most boys never grow out of toys, they just get more expensive LOL
