NEW TECHNOLOGIES ARE giving us an unprecendented view of the inner-workings of our brains. So next time on Kids These Days, we're talking about brain development during a child's teenage years. Adolescence is a period of growth that is distinct - so just what is going on between the ears of your teenager? Adolescent development expert and author, Dr. Laurence Steinberg & UAA's Dr. John Petraitis join us to discuss how your teen's odd or risky behavior could be explained by normal adolescent brain development.
PLUS, we talk with a man known as The Teen Whisperer; you tell us what you remember as the biggest risk you took as a teenager and, since we're talking about teens, Dr. KTD tells us what accounts for that um, interesting teen smell.
