Between the ages of twelve and twenty-four, the brain changes in important,
and oftentimes maddening, ways. It’s no wonder that many parents approach their
child’s adolescence with fear and trepidation. According to renowned
neuropsychiatrist Daniel Siegel, however, if parents and teens can work
together to form a deeper understanding of the brain science behind all the
tumult, they will be able to turn conflict into connection and form a deeper understanding
of one another.
Siegel illuminates how brain development impacts teenagers’ behavior and
relationships. Drawing on important new research in the field of interpersonal
neurobiology, he explores exciting ways in which understanding how the teenage
brain functions can help parents make what is in fact an incredibly positive
period of growth, change, and experimentation in their children’s lives less
lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide. Download and start listening now!
