The Teen Brain: Under Construction

Think Global: Watch this 3 minute video on brain science to help you empathize with your teen during this prolonged time of transition.

From Laci Green of DNews. Find out why these are in short supply with your teen, even those past age 18:

  • self-control
  • motivation
  • goal-setting
  • paying attention
  • planning
  • understanding consequences.

Act Local: Take stock

  1. What behaviors in your teen show that they are almost a grown-up?
  2. What behaviors in your teen show that they still have a lot of growing up to do?
  3. How can you show empathy as they transition?
