Is there anything we can do about that?

Gwen is eleven and at the doorway to the change from childhood to adulthood. She is holding on to the frame with both hands, but it isn't working.

She was disappointed when I told her that the time had come for her to join the ranks of family members who have their own deodorant, but that wasn't the worst of it. She got a teeny tiny pimple the other day.

When I told her it was just because she was getting closer to puberty, she moaned and asked, "Isn't there anything we can do to stop puberty?"

Sorry, sweetie!
