How are general growth and sexual maturation different from each other ?
General growth is the growth of an individual in size, height, shape, weight, etc. Sexual maturation is a set of changes in body of an individual that
enable one to take part in reproduction, e.g., maturation of gonads, genitalia and other accessory structures. In human beings, beginning of sexual
maturation is indicated by puberty changes like cracking of voice, new hair pattern, development of breast in female, etc.
