Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This program is part of a three-volume series which addresses issues that face young people as they make choices which affect their self-image and set into motion forces that can become the beliefs and habits of a lifetime. Using animation and real teenagers, the programs illustrate each point. This episode examines the physiological and emotional changes that occur during puberty, as profound hormonal changes overtake the young body and mind. While adolescent changes are a universal phenomenon, the program emphasizes the importance of individual genetic background and self-acceptance of one's unique presence in the world.
