Did you ever wonder why your teenagers do the weird and wacky things they do? Do you buy the myth that it is all about raging hormones? Neuroscientists are opening the window on the mysterious teenage brain giving parents inside tips that account for their emotional changes, rule breaking, defiant attitudes and sometimes dangerous behavior.
The teenage brain is wired differently than any other generation in history. It is a work in progress. Huge changes are occurring in the brain. Your teens are experiencing biological turmoil. Their brain is a construction zone with blossoming, pruning, mylenating, reconnecting and reconfiguring going on constantly. Your teens can love you in the morning and hate you in the afternoon. The smallest little incident can trigger an emotional outburst that can last for hours, even days. A new brain is being built. All of these changes begin around age 11.
