Stepping into Adolescence For most young people, the transition from childhood to adulthood is paved with emotional, psychological, physical and social conflicts. They become worried and curious about the changes in their bodies and seek answers to their concerns about these new experiences. Many-a-times, parents do not discuss these issues as they find them embarrassing, and hence young people rely on their peers for information, thus many-a-times receiving wrong or inadequate information. This document has been designed to provide young people with accurate information regarding the physical growth and development, consequences of early marriages and early pregnancy, and the sexual and reproductive rights.
