Recent research on the human brain provides parents with shaky new evidence to explain teens sometimes irrational, logical and impulsive behavior. Researchers of the brain now read the brain of the living teenager to observe and examine how strange and confused creatures bring impulsive and egocentric decisions that may sometimes lead to risky behaviors.
As it turns out, brain development in teenagers is radically more active and dynamic than previously thought. In those years, the part of the brain that requires man to make responsible decisions, understand the consequences and problem-solving process, is difficult to build up and works in a long time. Although the brain is almost physically mature, the gray matter (frontal frontal cortex) in the thinking mind of the brain is still . So teenagers stay in the emotional part (limbic system) in most of their brains.
Information processed in the limbic system, without giving preference to higher levels of processing in the frontal frontal cortex, impulsive, egocentric, and possibly even risky behavior. Due to the ongoing structure of the thinking mind, many times the teenager can not fully process the information needed to make responsible decisions. This is combining the brain challenge with a teenager's temperament, maturity level, stage of development, and environmental impacts, and it is understandable why parents find this time so tiresome and frustrating.
Recognizing that the main building of the front-facing teenage cortex does not obstruct the teen's inappropriate or irresponsible behavior. But understanding the teenage brain is crucial to determining how to interact with it. For teenagers, this time in their life can lead to a creative and emotional roller coaster, a lot of excitement and chill (and perhaps a few spills), but parents can only be nervous and fearsome. Healthy communication and effective discipline your teenager needs to help navigate at this important time, especially because the brain is still not necessarily ready or able to face any unavoidable challenge without support
Every interaction affects a teenager's development on her mind, helping teen relationships in the frontal frontal cortex. At a difficult time of construction, the teenage brain needs concentrated and deliberate support and teaching to help shape and consolidate these hopefully healthy relationships. Parents can be useful in understanding that they are doing a lot of work while the teenager's brain is still under construction and has a good perspective and effort, the teenager can learn less impulsive and egocentric knowledge and make better and more responsible decisions.  As parents decide how to communicate more effectively with developing teenagers, it is essential to consider who the child is and what parent styles there are for the child. Most people are the result of a consistent dose of nature and nutrition, and understanding the nature of children and how the environment affects the child, can help parents develop more effective techniques when challenging teenagers
A complex and fascinating combination of teenage nature temperament, stage of development, personality, maturity level and social relationship. In addition, parents should consider the teen's emotional state (self-esteem) and relational health (to what extent the teenager's closest relationship with development). And then there is parental style. A healthy and effective parental role (which can be regarded as credible) can help the positive development of a teenager's brain. Healthy communication tools, such as active listening, reframing, timing of teaching moments, I messages, and so on. And effective disciplinary tools such as setting a healthy limit, consequences, sorting and struggling, little rule, etc., can greatly help teenagers prefrontalize cortex to establish solid relationships for responsible behavior
