Présentation de l'éditeur

A generation ago, fewer than 5 percent of girls started puberty before the age of 8; today, that percentage has more than doubled. Early puberty is not just a matter of physical transformation--it's also deeply psychological, with a myriad of effects that can put a girl at higher risk for behavioral problems and long-term health challenges.


In this reassuring and empowering guide, Louise Greenspan, MD, and Julianna Deardoff, PhD--two leading experts on the root causes and potential consequences of early puberty in girls--deliver vital advice on how to prevent and manage early puberty. They explain surprising triggers--from excess body fat to hormone-mimicking chemicals to emotional stressors in a girl's home and family life--and offer highly practical strategies, including how to limit exposure to certain ingredients in personal care and household products, which foods to eat and which to avoid, ways to improve a child's sleep routine to promote healthy biology, and more.

The New Puberty is an engaging, urgently needed road map to helping young girls move forward with confidence, ensuring their future well-being.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Resource for early puberty 8 octobre 2014
Par Talvi - Publié sur Amazon.com
The focus of the New Puberty book is early development in girls - with examples as young as 5 year old hitting puberty (but mostly geared at the 8-9 year range). Yet ideally this is also a book for parents with young girls who haven't started showing puberty signs yet to give them an idea of what to look for and some insight into why the modern girl is hitting puberty so much earlier/younger than her predecessors. The book is extremely informative and ideal for both parents (written in a friendly and accessible way) and practitioners (many recent studies are published and put together). As a parent, I look for these types of books to be informative and yet not have all the answers - I don't want another 'fad' or narrowminded perspective on parenting. What I do need is to know what recent findings there are and have those put into perspective of our past approaches to dealing with girls hitting puberty (earlier or otherwise).

The book is broken down as follows : Part 1: Causes of Early Puberty (defining puberty, potential repercussions, and puberty prompters). Part 2: Strategies (is medicine necessary, precautionary steps, healthy habits, the brain of a developing girl, the "talk"). In effect, the "Why" and then the "what to do."

This isn't a hype book with a lot of call outs or pretty pictures. It's a very straightforward, informative, intelligent approach to the subject with the understanding that we are still learning so much about the subject (and will probably never know completely about the process of turning girls into women). And, although hitting puberty early is natural, it can also be very problematic for the girl and create issues that will need to be dealt with by parents.

Also important is that there are steps parents can take to help prevent the onset of puberty at an earlier age. The book notes that the three most powerful forces at work in early puberty deal with weight, exposure to chemicals, and social/psychological trauma. Simply working toward a better diet at 5-6 years old could have great benefits toward discouraging the body to kick into puberty early.

This is a very good read for parents of young girls, whether or not they are seeing signs of puberty. Sometimes, parents really need an intelligent and straightforward presentation of factors that are (or may) affect the growth of their child. Especially since we are bombarded with 'answers' from relatives and media that are without basis or fact.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Read this book if you have daughters! 17 septembre 2014

As a mom of preteen daughters, I found this book to be insightful, informative and also practical. I wish I had this book when my daughters were younger! I especially loved all the practical information offered in Chapter 5- How to manage environmental risks and Chapter 8- Don't have the "talk", start the conversation. If you have daughters, this is a "must have" book to add to your parenting library.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good read IF your daughter hasn't already gone through puberty 25 juin 2015
Par M. Green - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I would recommend this book if you have a young daughter who has not yet entered puberty, as it offers concrete advice for ways you MAY avoid early puberty. However, if your daughter has already gone through early puberty, I would recommend against reading it. The double edged sword of offering advice to avoid early puberty is the implication you as a parent must have done something wrong if your daughter goes through puberty early, along with the associated guilt.

An expertly written book by true experts. It is written for the layman, but as a physician I find it very valuable. Everyone raising girls should own it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Puberty arriving earlier than ever before 14 janvier 2015
Par James Denny - Publié sur Amazon.com
Written primarily for mothers whose daughters are on the verge of or in the midst of puberty, "The New Puberty" doubles as both a research compendium and guide.

The most important point that authors Louise Greenspan and Julianna Deardorff want to get across is that the transition to puberty is a normal process. The second issue, which is probably what brings most readers to this book is that puberty is occuring at an earlier age in girls than ever before. This is not the case for boys. So, why is that?

As recently as 100 years ago, which is not long in evolutionary time, the average age of puberty in girls (as mapped to the first mentstrual period) was 16. In the past half-century it has moved from age 14 to roughly age 12 1/2, where it is now. While there is still considerable variation among girls, there is no question that the average age has dropped.

The authors explore a number of avenues to explain this: diet; hormonal treatments in animals (milk and meat); the use of prepared foods; chemicals in the environment; and obesity. Many of these factors have been known for some time to be associated with earlier menarche. Indeed, when diet is inadequate or insufficient, the menarche is delayed.

What I found to be intriguing is the area coming to be known as epigenetics. These include a mix of biological, psychological and social factors that seem to be associated with the earlier onset of puberty. Family stability, family relations, racial and ethnic background, the parents own behavior and type of guidance and community norms figure into patterns. There is empirical evidence to show these factors combine to have an effect.

The authors explore so-called "precocious puberty," when puberty onsets at an unusually early age. However, that is not the focus of this work. In "The New Puberty," the focus is on factors that have brought down the age of puberty for the vast majority of girls, girls of all types, from all backgrounds, from different socio-economic levels with different family structures.

While the authors provide a wide variety of useful tips and recommendations to help parents deal with an earlier onset of puberty in girls than has ever been the case, they are unable to fully explain why and how this has come to be. More work remains to be done to understand this.
