It’s often tough to understand why teenagers do what they do. One moment they’re calm and rational, but the next they’re agitated and emotional. One day they’re making incredibly wise choices, but the next they’re making disastrous mistakes. Yesterday they earned your trust, but today it seems they’ve lost it once again.
Why such inconsistency? Credit their brains.
Without an understanding of teenage brain development, we might miss life’s teachable moments or shut down our child’s curiosity with easy answers that don’t satisfy the search for truth happening below the surface.
New Canaan Asset Building Organizations are very excited to welcome veteran youth worker and author Mark Oestreicher for a parent lunch and workshop on Understanding the Teenage Brain which will be filled with helpful and practical insights for parents with kids of all ages.
