Teen Brain | Tuesday, 28 January 2020 : 7:30pm – 9:00pm | Rutherford College, Te Atatu – Auckland
Rutherford College is proud to announce that host of the documentary “All in the Mind”, and co-host of the TV Series “The Secret life of Girls”, Nathan Wallis, Aotearoa’s renowned neuroscience educator, is coming to our community with his talk – Teen Brain.
There are 6000-year-old hieroglyphics carved into the pyramids depicting the teenagers of the time as being self-obsessed, defiant and unmotivated – that’s sounding pretty familiar don’t you think?
During adolescence part of your teenage brain “shuts for renovations”. This is the part of the brain responsible for controlling your teenager’s moods, for understanding consequences and for thinking about the well-being of others. So, whilst you can’t expect lots of those behaviours during adolescence, there are ways that you can enhance and maximise the times when they can. Understanding the changes that are taking place for your teen will help you to navigate successfully these important and formative years.
Join Nathan for an in-depth look into the teen brain and get a summary of the latest research and everything a parent, grandparent or whanau needs to know.
