Last weekend, we co-sponsored the 4th Annual Coronado SAFE Parenting Conference. Over 150 parents and grandparents attended and listened to experts talking about the Changing Teen Brain and The New Science of Parenting.
Diane Divecha, PhD showed PET scans of teen brains. She recommended books for parents to read:
Age of Opportunity: Lessons from the New Science of Adolescence, by Laurance Steinberg
Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain, by Daniel Siegel
