Puberty: Her body is changing and she is increasingly aware of her body and how others perceive her, she is curious about her menstrual periods and concerned about whether her physical changes are normal. She is developing sexual thoughts and desires and needs info about her feelings and responses in a non-judgemental open fashion. Curiousity is mixed with desire and insecurity.
