About the Author

Introduction

Myths About the Teenage Brain

Until ten years ago, scientists believed brain growth was complete by the time a child started kindergarten, and that teenage brains were much like an adult brains. They believed whatever talents you might have at puberty; you stayed that way for the rest of your life. Other myths and misconceptions include:

Teens are impulsive and emotional because of surging hormones.

Teens are rebellious and oppositional because they want to be difficult and different.

Teenagers’ brains are resilient and can recover quickly from shocks and illnesses.
