INDEX

internal organs undergo a considerable and rapid enlargement. The 

mammae enlarge, the ovarian vesicles become dilated, and there is 

established a periodical discharge of one or more ova, accompanied, 

in most cases, by a sanguineous fluid from the cavity of the uterus." 

 

These changes, so varied and extraordinary, often occur within a very 

short space of time; and as they are liable to serious derangement, 

especially in the female, great care should be taken to secure for the 

individual the most favorable conditions until they are successfully 

effected. It is, however, a fact deserving of mention, that many of 

the ills which are developed at this particular period are quite as 

much the result of previous indiscretions and mismanagement as of any 

immediate cause. A few suggestions with regard to the proper treatment 

of individuals at this age may be in place. 

 

1. Do not allow the boy or girl to be overworked, either mentally or 

physically. Great and important changes are occurring within the body, 

and nature should not be overtaxed. 

 

2. Keep the mind occupied. While excessive labor should be avoided, 

idleness should be as carefully shunned. Some light, useful employment 

or harmless amusement--better some kind of work--should keep the mind 

fully occupied with wholesome subjects. 

 

3. Abundant exercise out-of-doors is essential for both sexes. Sunshine 

and fresh air are as necessary to the development of a human being as 

for the expanding of a flower bud. 

 

4. Watch carefully the associations of the youth. This should be done 

at all times, but especially just at the critical period in question, 

when the general physical disturbances occurring in the system react 

upon the mind and make it peculiarly susceptible to influences, 

especially those of an evil character. 

 

5. None too much care can be exercised at this important epoch of human 

life, provided it is properly applied; but nothing could be more 

disastrous in its consequences than a weak solicitude which panders 

to every whim and gratifies every perverted appetite. _Such_ care is 

a fatal error.
