Have you ever wondered just why teenagers seem so alien? There is new research showing that the answer lies in the brain. Come learn about how the tween & teenage brain differs from an adult brain, and what you as a parent can do differently to communicate with a brain that is still under construction! You will also have the opportunity to construct your own model of the teen brain!
