““Teenagers are often parodied, sometimes even demonized, in the media for their typical teenage behavior — they take risks, they’re moody, they’re very self-conscious,” Blakemore says in her talk. Even Shakespeare, she says, made jabs at teens. “But what’s sometimes seen as the problem of adolescence shouldn’t be stigmatized. It actually reflects changes in the brain that provide an excellent opportunity for education and social development.””

I continue to be amazed at the people I meet who assert that they were perfect teenagers without providing a lick of worry or strain to their parents.  I love it when I meet their parents.

If your library serves teenagers, watch the video..
