Parents... Are you fed-up?

Why do teenagers make poor decisions and have no remorse?

Here are why your teens act the way they do:

  • Deficiency in insular cortex (tissue around the largest portion of the brain) causes bad decisions in teens
  • Youngsters underdevelopment of frontal lobe causes them to behave emotionally, violently, and unreasonably
  • The brain isn't fully developed until early 20's
  • "The frontal cortex, determines the quality of judgment, self-control, and sensible planning of the brain, develops slowly throughout teenage adolescence." -Neuroscience studies
