Rudeness! Impulsivity! Stupid mistakes! Temper tantrums! Laziness! Parents have known for centuries that teenagers enter a phase where they become rebellious, take risks and get moody. But what science couldnt tell you until very recently is why. Recent brain-imaging studies have documented how the thinking part of the brain is literally under construction during the teen years. This presentation gives parents the tools to better understand their teen and to help them survive - and thrive! - during the roller-coaster years.
