Hence the bodies of our youth and their social worlds tend to change “and evolve throughout puberty and adolescence” (Mendle 3). In terms of health and well-being we must understand the complex variation in puberty. The domains such as social and biological aspects help us to recognize that “these domains are, to some degree, intertwined—particularly in data collected at a single point” (Mendle
