Scientists at Newcastle University in the U.K. have discovered that girls tend to optimize brain connections earlier than boys. The researchers conclude that this may explain why females generally mature faster in certain cognitive and emotional areas than males during childhood and adolescence. The new study was published on December 19, 2013, in Cerebral Cortex.

However, they found that not all projections (long-range connections) between brain regions are affected to the same extent for males and females: Changes were influenced differently depending on the types of connections. Changes in these connections have been found in many developmental brain disorders including autism, epilepsy, and schizophrenia. With many neurological diseases, there are widespread differences between the sexes. For example, autism spectrum disorders are almost 5 times more common among boys (1 in 54) than among girls (1 in 252).

Some causes of early puberty in girls include thyroid disorders, abnormal brain structure, exposure to radiation therapy, or ovarian cysts. Genetic conditions may result in early puberty and can be detected with testing. In 90% of cases in girls, however, there is no known cause.

Early puberty in boys is more likely to be caused by an underlying disease. Causes of early puberty in boys are similar to girls, and include thyroid disorders, abnormal brain structure, exposure to radiation therapy, and certain genetic conditions. It may also be caused by tumors of the brain, testis, liver, and/or adrenal glands.

Nutritional status in old age is as important as in any other stage of the life cycle. Some physiological changes that occur as part of the ageing process tend to have significant impact on the health and nutritional wellbeing of mature women. Changes in body composition (e.g. reduction in lean muscle mass) and reduced physical activity levels have direct links to energy requirements. The digestive and immune systems become less efficient, and the ability to taste and smell is diminished or lost. This decreases the enjoyment of eating. Digestive problems may be experienced because it is harder to absorb nutrients or chew and swallow food. Stomach acids (e.g. gastric acid) production is decreased. The acids enhance the effective absorption and utilization of nutrients (e.g. vitamin B12, folic acid, and iron). The lower acid production can render mature women vulnerable to nutritional deficiencies.

Generally, energy needs decrease and protein requirements increase as you age. The important nutrients most likely to be deficient in the diet of mature women include vitamin B-12, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, calcium, iron, and zinc. The nutritional requirements of mature women can be met if they have a good appetite and eat a variety of foods.

Energy requirements tend to decrease due to reduced physical activity and changes in metabolic functions. As muscle mass decreases in the mature, the requirement for energy becomes less than that of the younger adult. The basal metabolic rate also goes down, and so the energy needs of the mature are reduced. However, the same cannot be said of protein, vitamin and mineral requirements.

Vitamin D helps your body to use calcium and helps your immune system to function properly (that is, vitamin D helps your body prevent and fight infections). The two main sources of vitamin D are sunlight and your diet. Rich dietary sources of vitamin D are fatty fishes and fortified dairy products. Some mature women may avoid consuming dairy products because lactose intolerance is more common in older adults. Skin manufactures vitamin D only in the presence of sunlight. The vitamin D precursor in the skin that allows this decreases with age, putting mature women at greater risk of vitamin D deficiency.

Zinc helps your body produce white blood cells to fight infection; helps your white blood cells release more antibodies; increases the number of killer cells that fight against cancer; and slows the growth of cancer. Zinc-deficient mature women will have less ability to resist infections compared to women who get enough zinc.

People eat less food rich in vitamin B12 (e.g. meat) as they age, perhaps due to difficulty chewing meat and to financial constraints against buying the meat. Furthermore, reduced production of stomach acids may hinder the bioavailability of vitamin B12, as gastric acid is necessary for the digestion of food rich in vitamin B12. Bacterial overgrowth in the gut of the mature may make vitamin B12 less available for absorption and utilization. It may be necessary to supplement the diet of the mature with vitamin B12 in order to ensure an adequate supply. Evidence from recent research shows that the amino acid homocysteine, like blood cholesterol, is a risk factor for coronary disease. To a large extent, the blood level of homocysteine is controlled by vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and folic acid. It is therefore possible that adequate micronutrient status of these vitamins may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, especially in old age.

Osteoporosis is common in mature women. It weakens bones, causing them to be easily fractured after falls. Though osteoporosis may be treated with a range of different medications, it is better to prevent it.

The problem of osteoporosis relates to failure in meeting the requirements for calcium and vitamin D. Vitamin D, synthesised by our bodies in sunlight, controls calcium absorption from our diets. As we advance in age, the efficiency of vitamin D synthesis diminishes. mature women, especially those living in areas without enough sunshine, may have to depend on their diets for enough vitamin D to maintain calcium absorption. Research evidence indicates that by increasing the dietary intake of vitamin D, osteoporosis and its associated problems can be prevented.

Type 2 diabetics produce sufficient quantities of insulin, but their bodies do not respond adequately. In contrast, for people with type 1 diabetes, insulin is present in very small quantities (or may even be absent) and insulin injections are warranted. Obesity is a risk factor for insulin resistance, and because older people are generally more inactive, they are more predisposed to becoming obese. Poor glucose utilisation in the mature is caused by reduced lean muscle mass and insulin resistance. This may explain why type 2 diabetes is prevalent among aged people.

To further inform policy and practice in child-serving systems, the report recommends additional research to determine the causal connection between the adultification of black girls and existing disparities in negative outcomes.

Open to girls in grades 11 and 12, Real Life Academy (RLA) is a unique life skills program that immerses girls into an adult lifestyle based on their own choices and gives them an opportunity to earn a $1,000 scholarship.

RLA participants explore independence through four in-person workshops, each with an underlying theme in financial literacy. Throughout the program, girls get first-hand experience in their career interest through job shadows with adult mentors. The program is facilitated by Girl Scout staff and experts from the community who serve as mentors.

Exclusively for high school girls, YWE3Lead is a leadership conference with a keynote speaker, presenters, and workshops focused on gender identity, inclusion and allyship, self-defense, activism, and the Girl Scout Leadership Experience!

Girls in grades 6-12 and invited to join their area Girl Scout Advisory Group (GSAG) and impact council programming. You can write for the Juliette Gazette, be a key player in all things Girl Scouts, and become instant friends with the most AWESOME girls. You can join even if you are already in another troop or if you are an Individual Girl Scout.

There are really no hard and fast rules when it comes to fashion for mature women, so find what works for you and own it! Being comfortable and confident in your own skin is the real key to ageless style.

One of the most common euphemisms and justifications for a certain type of childhood trauma is growing up too fast. It is a euphemism because it is used to minimize the pain that the person felt as a child when their needs werent being met by describing it in seemingly neutral or even positive language. Its a justification because it is often used to argue that growing up faster and becoming mature beyond your years is indeed a good thing.

What is frequently called growing up too fast or being mature beyond your years is simply neglect and abuse. Many children grow up in an environment where they are neglected and abused in such ways that they become little adults who, not only can take care of themselves better or are wiser than others, but also take care of their parents, siblings, or other family members.

And secondly, the child grows up too fast because of role-reversal. Role-reversal means that the caregiver assigns their role onto the child and therefore the child is seen as somebody who has to take care of the caregiver and possibly others. The adult, in contrast, takes on the role of the child. The child internalizes this role and it becomes their self-understanding. And so they start to act as a mature, responsible adult while the actual adult is taken care of as though they were the child.

Now, as an adult, Olivia struggles with intimacy in her romantic relationship as she has found a partner who is emotionally immature and self-unaware, just like her father. She works way too many hours, oftentimes missing on sleep or overworking herself into terrible physiological symptoms because of lack of proper rest, an excess of coffee and energy drinks, poor diet, and chronic stress. Its an extension of her history of anorexia and self-mutilation that started in early adolescence as a response to her overwhelming home environment. 041b061a72
