Just For Parents: A Look Inside the Teenage Brain

Consider Mark Twain's advice on parenting a teenager: "When a child turns 12, he should be kept in a barrel and fed through the bung hole, until he reaches 16…at which time you plug the bung hole."

If you regularly find yourself at wit's end as you parent your teenager, perhaps a little perspective on the goings-on of the teen brain would be helpful. I was introduced to an excellent article in Parade Magazine that not only gives insight on some of the challenges we face, but also some good advice on helping your teen make it to adulthood.
