There are 6000-year-old hieroglyphics carved into the pyramids depicting the teenagers of the timeas being self-obsessed, defiant and unmotivated - does that sound familar to you?

During adolescence part of your teenagers brain “shuts for renovations”. This is the part of the brain responsible for controlling your teenager’s moods, for understanding consequences and for thinking about the well-being of others. So whilst you can’t expect lots of those behaviours during adolescence, there are ways that you can enhance and maximise the times when they can. Understanding the changes that are taking place for your teen will help you to navigate successfully these important and formative years.
