This section addresses normal development. Developmental schedules vary greatly from individual to individual, so if you develop at a different pace than your peers and still fall within the range of normal development there is no need to be alarmed. Every year you should have a physical examination by a medical doctor. If you fall outside the range of normal development due to a continuous or serious illness, Your doctor should recognize it during a physical examination, and would then offer advice. Otherwise, you are on your way to adulthood, and only require patience and good health to reach physical and mental maturity.
