10 Years Old
When your kid is 10 years old, they may think they are close to being teenagers or still see themselves as “big kids.” Whatever the case may be, being 10 years old signifies a lot of change.
They may start to show more signs of puberty at age 10. Some of those signs include hair growth in their armpits and genital area, increased sweating, oily skin, etc.
They can start to admire and even imitate older youth, especially the older kids at their school. They can start questioning authority and learn to accept their family or parent’s beliefs.
They may love to join in activities with other people, but they may also experience some peer pressure in school. Additionally, they may identify more with people of the same gender.
In this stage of child and adolescent development, they may start getting more interested in pop culture or sports teams. Additionally, they often learn how to use better judgment at this age.

They may get another growth spurt at this age. However, they may also want to eat and sleep more because of their growing pains.
They often have their own personality, especially in their friend group. They may also start to resist family time, so it is ideal to teach them the importance of family.
