This fast-paced program uses humor and appealing animations to introduce middle schoolers to the many changes that accompany adolescence. Program goes beyond the physical manifestations of puberty and discusses the enormous emotional, social and developmental changes that occur. Likeable teen hosts reassure viewers of many normal aspects of early adolescence: changing relationships with friends, a new sense of independence from parents, unpredictable moments of emotional upheaval and distraction, and more. Viewers will understand and appreciate that there is no single “blueprint” for how a teen is built—what matters most is acceptance of self and others. The message is clear: adolescence is not a destination but an important milestone in a journey that lasts a lifetime.
