Do all teenagers go through the same pattern of growth?

No they do not. There is a great amount of variation in the rate of changes that may occur. Some teenagers may experience these signs of maturity sooner or later than others. Every “body” is different and these changes will happen when your body is good and ready for it to happen – and not before. You cannot hurry the process. So ride with it and don’t panic if your growth happens to be faster or slower than your same age-group friends.
