Understanding the Teenage Brain – November 19, 2021 –

Adolescents and teens can be unpredictable. We often ask ourselves, what is happening in their brains? Thanks to recent developments in neuroscience, we have some answers that help us to understand them more clearly. 

MS Counselor Mr. Andy Krauthoefer presents the Middle School Parent Coffee Talk, Understanding the Teenage Brain, and discusses the incredible potential—and potential danger—of the teenage brain. The talk addresses the development of the brain, how it impacts choice and decision-making, and how to engage in meaningful conversations with your teen based on your understanding of where they are developmentally.
