In our latest The Parents Website Webinar Series, renowned educational neuroscientist and Harvard graduate Dr Jared Cooney Horvath took us on a tour of the teenage brain and gave us tips on how to support our teens. Here, you can watch the full webinar.
What’s going on with your teenager?
Sometimes they’re bored, disengaged, and unmotivated. Other times they’re risky, unpredictable, and emotionally volatile.
During this webinar, Dr Jared Cooney Horvath will explore the brain, how it develops, and how things change during adolescence and early adulthood. Through fun, interactive activities, parents, carers (and even their young people!) can learn how (and why) teenagers think differently than adults and consider ways we can support them academically, emotionally, and cognitively.
Watch the full webinar below.
During the webinar, Jared mentions a short YouTube video which we’ve linked here – How Much Sleep Do Teenagers Really Need?
