What does puberty do to a boy's emotions and feelings?

Sexuality. At puberty, a lot of an adolescent boy's emotions focus on sexual feelings that are new, pleasurable, and yet confusing at the same time. He may be moody and withdrawn at times. He may have a strong need for independence even though he's not truly ready to live life on his own. It takes great parental patience to deal with these issues and help the body to pass through the milestones.
