As the author states “for every child, puberty begins a growth spurt—an uneven jump in the size of almost every body part” (Berger 326), physically, the adolescent starts to grow bigger in almost every way possible, and “growth proceeds from the extremities to the core (the opposite of the earlier proximodistal growth)…Fingers and toes before… the torso” (Berger 326) as such, this means that puberty begins to develop the entire being of oneself physically that is, and the beginning that is too.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
