The adolescent brain
Thriving through the teenage years
Like toddlers, teenagers often get a bad press when it comes to their behaviour. Sweeping generalisations can be made about the adolescent years, and many unsuspecting teenagers find themselves at the receiving end of unfavourable statements. For parents, the transformation that occurs in their children can have a significant impact. While for some the changes are barely noticeable, others may endure extreme ‘personality transplants’ in their children, and the rollercoaster of emotional adjustment to this new season can be daunting for parents and teenagers alike.
