Teenagers – The Teenage Brain

Recent research on the human brain is giving new parents shaky new evidence that may possibly explain teens sometimes irrational, logic and impulsive behavior. Brain researchers now read the brain of a living teenager to examine and examine whether these strange and confused creatures bring so many impulsive and egocentric decisions that may sometimes lead to risky behavior

is the radically more active and dynamic teenage year , as previously thought. In those years, the part of the brain that requires man to make responsible decisions, understand the consequences and problem-solving process, is difficult to build up and works in a long time. Although the brain is almost physically mature, the gray matter (frontal frontal cortex) in the thinking mind of the brain is still . So teenagers remain in most of the information about their brains in their emotional part (limbic system).

Information processed in the limbic system, without giving preference to higher levels of processing in the frontal frontal cortex, results in impulsive, egocentric or even risky behavior. Due to the ongoing structure of the thinking mind, many times the teenager can not fully process the information needed to make responsible decisions. This is combining brain challenge with the teen's temperament, maturity level, stage of development, and environmental impacts, and it is understandable why parents find this time so exhausting and frustrating.

The frontal frontal cortex of a teenager's brain is not unheard of the inappropriate or irresponsible behavior of the teenager. But understanding the teenage brain is crucial to determining how to interact with it. For teenagers, this time in their life can lead to a creative and emotional roller coaster, a lot of excitement and chill (and perhaps a few spills), but parents can only be nervous and fearsome. Healthy communication and effective discipline your teenager needs to help navigate in this important time, especially because the brain is still not necessarily ready or able to face any unavoidable challenge without any support. All interactions are a Teenager influences the brain's development, helping teenage relationships in the front front cortex. At a difficult time of construction, the teenage brain needs concentrated and deliberate support and teaching to help shape and consolidate these hopefully healthy relationships. Parents can be useful in understanding that they are doing a lot of work while the teenager's brain is still under construction and has a decent perspective and effort, the teenager can gain less impulsive and egocentric knowledge and can make better and more responsible decisions.

As parents decide how to communicate more effectively with the developing teenager brain, it is essential to consider who the child is and what parent styles there are for the child. Most of them are the result of a consistent dose of nature and nutrition, and understanding the nature of the children and how the environment affects the child, can help parents develop more effective techniques when challenging teenagers' teething.

and is a fascinating combination of temperament, stage of development, personality, maturity and social relationships. In addition, parents should consider the teen's emotional health (self-esteem) and relational health (to what extent the relationship of the teenager influences the development). And then there is a parenting style. A healthy and effective parental role (which can be regarded as credible) can help the positive development of a teenager's brain. Healthy communication tools, such as active listening, reframing, timing of teaching moments, I messages, and so on. And effective disciplinary tools such as setting a healthy limit, consequences, sorting and fighting, few rules, etc., can help teenagers prefrontalize their cortex to establish a solid relationship for responsible behavior
