What the Expert Says:

As children start to approach adolescence, they experience a growth spurt.  They begin to develop secondary sex characteristics, such as hair in the pubic and axillary (arm pits) areas.  Boys start to notice growth of the penis and girls start to develop breasts.  About 2 years after the breast growth begins, girls begin menstruating.  At that time, the vertical growth (height) stops.
