What Age do Boys Begin Puberty?
Boys wonder when their voices will get deeper, when they'll need to shave, or when their penises will grow. The fact is that physical development starts at different times and progresses at different rates in different people.
So, the beginning of the development that comes with puberty varies from person to person — and that's completely normal. Boys begin their development on average around age 10 or 11, but it's also normal to begin anytime between the ages of 9 and 15.
It usually takes several years after the first changes of puberty begin before they're all complete — and there's a lot of variation from person to person. So, two normally developing boys who are the same age can appear quite different from each other. One can look older and more physically mature than the other. But the one who started later will catch up in time.
