Social and Emotional Concerns
of Children With Central
Precocious Puberty (CPP)
A child may not be
prepared for changes
When pubertal changes happen in a young child's body, they may have an impact on your child's emotions. Being different may make a child feel uncomfortable about such changes, as most children want to be like their friends and classmates. This may result in low self-esteem and embarrassment.
Young children with CPP may be emotionally unprepared if puberty is happening too early. Puberty too early can lead to disturbances in behavior, which may include moodiness associated with "teen attitude," heightened anxiety, and symptoms of depression.
