The New Puberty

Books $25.00Available in the shop

Well researched and engaging, The New Puberty explores the physiological and societal changes affecting this generation of children as they embark on puberty – in many cases, earlier than their parents and grandparents did, hence the book's title.

Author Amanda Dunn is the politics and society editor for The Conversation, and was a journalist with The Age newspaper for 16 years. For the book, Dunn has interviewed specialist doctors, psychologists, social researchers, principals, teachers and parents, resulting in an evidence-based, approachable book that details the facts about puberty, as well as providing practical suggestions – such as conversation starters – for parents. Personal anecdotes and those of friends and survey respondents are also laced through the book, illustrating the breadth of people's experiences of puberty.

The New Puberty is divided into four main sections. The first discusses theories behind the earlier onset of puberty (eg, better nutrition, environmental triggers) and the growing disparity between children's physical and psychosocial development. The second and third sections are devoted to girls' puberty and boys' puberty respectively, while the fourth explores the gaps in the current model of sexuality education in schools, and urges for reform.
