Puberty or adolescence is the transition between childhood and adulthood. It usually occurs during the teenage years , although it can begin earlier and finish later, and involves a complex chain of events that affect growth and sexual development. Once the development is complete, the production of sex hormones will reduce and stop growth and sexual development - signaling the end of puberty and beginning of adulthood. Sex hormones stimulate the pituitary gland to secrete more growth hormone. This stimulates the growth plates in the limbs so the bones get longer. Since there are higher amounts of growth hormone released during puberty, most children have a number of growth spurts during this time. Eventually, these sex hormones promote "maturation" of the bone, which means that the growth plates close and the bones stop growing.
