Our bodies are a confusing thing no matter if you’re boy or girl shaped! Find out what’s going on during puberty.

There comes a time in everyone’s lives where they have to have that #awkwardconversation they’ve been dreading. Caspar and Thatcher Joe are gonna share some of their tips on how to have those chats by re-living some of young Caspar’s conversations with his mother, played by… Thatcher Joe which is kind of random but the point still comes across.

Sooooo when Caspar was growing up he had a couple of issues where other boys had started growing hair on their bodies but he hadn’t yet, and another time he wanted to know how to deal with bullies at school, so he asked his Mum. In his head, the conversation was going to be so cringe, and his Mum was going to be so out of touch that she wouldn’t be able to help at all BUT he gave it a go and, you know what? She totally calmed him down and helped him out. You’ll have to check the video to see the very weird re-enactment of that chat but the point is that these conversations are always worse in your head than they are in real life.

It may not be your Mum! It could be your Dad, Sister, Uncle (basically, any relative you trust) or a teacher or a doctor or a friend or the postman (again, you gotta trust them!) or… you get it. Whoever it is you decide to chat to – be cool! The chat will always go better than you think. And it will never be as weird as Joe in that big silver wig… (watch the video!!)
