When every kid turns 9, all parents should receive a standard issue manual laying out what’s about to start happening in their children’s brains. Understanding this is the key to communicating and connecting with them in empowering and influential ways, helping them navigate healthily and safely through their internally and externally chaotic worlds, all while maintaining our sanity and close relationships with them. We might even begin to turn our exasperation into an ability to embrace what is awesome about adolescence!
Adolescent Brain Science (for Non-Scientists)
Gain an understanding in simple terms of what is going on in the massive renovation of your adolescent's brain, and how they operate very differently from ours.
Identifying How Their Brain Functioning Shows Up for Them
Learn to recognize when their moods, behaviors, and interactions are being impacted by what is and isn't going on in their developing brains.
Equipped with a greater understanding of our kids' brains, now we can use this to communicate more effectively, foster greater connection, and be even more supportive and influential in helping our adolescents thrive.
