Teenage Brain Development
The teen years are often tough–to live through and to parent! Teens are capable of so much, but their brains are still developing to understand all the implications their decisions hold. Back in 2011 National Geographic published an article Teenage Brains, that I found informative and useful. And there is a new 2015 book about the The Teenage Brain: A Neuroscientist’s Guide to Raising Adolescents and Young Adults that also lends some insight into this fantastic, if not often crazy-inspiring time of life in the interview with the author as well as another article about the book in the Washington Post. I hope these links to articles are as interesting and useful to our camp parents and teens as they are for me.
