How Teens Make DecisionsParents
Want to know how to help your teen make solid decisions? It starts by understanding the teen brain. It’s growing during adolescence, but the emotional centers in the brain develop faster than the decision-making centers. Your teen will test you and struggle to expand limits, and that’s actually a good thing. This is a time to explore and take chances so our super-learners can gain new knowledge. Encourage your teen to channel that brain growth into new experiences, activities, and places. Give some boundaries and ask them, “What’s the best that can happen?” and see what they do.
