The terrible teens-as they are sometimes called-when almost every child seems to be unruly or rebellious or just not as connected to life as we would hope. Most people chalk it up to social circles or home life or any number of different reasons. The reality is that “between the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important, and oftentimes maddening, ways. [...] According to renowned neuropsychiatrist Daniel Siegel, however, 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.”  
On today’s episode of Changing Direction, Michele welcomes Dr. Dan Siegel to discuss his upcoming book, BRAINSTORM: THE POWER & PURPOSE OF THE TEENAGE BRAIN. Dr. Siegel will share new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, and ways that you can better understand your teenagers brain function which can help make your relationship with your teenager “less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.”
