Successful Teenagers

understanding adolescent brain development

Parent Meeting, Monday, April 26, at 7:30 p.m. EDT
with Greg Richards, Ph.D., Director, Middle Grades Ethics Project

 

Are you aware that the physical development of your child’s brain is inseparable from their mental maturity? This little-known fact should be guiding your parental decisions regarding your teen child, and yet so few of us are aware of the intertwining of our children’s physical brain and decision-making abilities. Teens and pre-teens are limited in their cognitive abilities not simply because of a lack of experience or maturity, but because their brain is still physically developing and will not truly be fully developed for many more years. These young years provide significant moments of challenge, as well as opportunities for parents and mentors to promote healthy development of their teen’s character and intellect.

Join Dr. Greg Richards as he explains the development of the adolescent brain through understandable terms and intriguing stories. You will call on this information often as you help your teen work through these formative years. Find out how the immature executive functioning of the young brain, along with the chemical rewards the brain receives when seeking novelty and risk with peers, calls for adult guidance that balances limits and affirmation.

Dr. Richards, father of two boys, will introduce the structure and functioning of the adolescent brain with an eye towards decision-making, risk-taking, and peer relationships. Don’t miss this intriguing and informative class. It may make all the difference in your child’s life.
