the power and purpose of the teenage brain
Statement of responsibility
Daniel J. Siegel, M.D
Between the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important, and oftentimes maddening, ways. Siegel shows that, 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

Between the ages of twelve and twenty-four, the brain changes in important and, at times, challenging ways. In Brainstorm, Dr. Daniel Siegel busts a number of commonly held myths about adolescence - for example, that it is merely a stage of immaturity” filled with often crazy” behavior. According to Siegel, during adolescence we learn vital skills, such as how to leave home and enter the larger world, connect deeply with others, and safely experiment and take risks
