Have you ever wondered WHY your teen does some of the weird things they do?
Do you get frustrated about having to repeat yourself a million times?
Does your teenager seem to think they know EVERYTHING?
It was just a mere 20 years ago that neuropsychology thought and adult brain was formed by the age of 12. Can you imagine that? 12 year olds, walking around with adult brains?
I don't know about you, but it makes much more sense to me that the recent discoveries of the brain reveal that an adult brain is not fully formed until the age of 25!! This explains A LOT about the difference between tweens/teens and adults.
We have learned in the last 20 years that there is an entire adolescent stage of development of the brain from age 12-25 years of age.
