As today's teens undergo rapid changes and are transformed into young adults, they worry that their own development is not keeping up with what is considered normal. Some become very self-conscious, or even embarrassed by the signs of sexual development. Girls may become obsessive about their weight, while boys may feel the cultural pressure to 'bulk up.'
