Do you ever wonder if your child is from another planet? Is your child suddenly behaving in ways you don’t expect? Are they happy one moment, then angry the next? Are they moody and grouchy? Are they sleeping more than you think they should?

Don’t panic! Help is at hand. These behaviours indicate changes in the adolescent brain.

Adolescence is a transitional period between childhood and adulthood that lasts from 10 to 25 years of age. Adolescence is usually associated with the teenage years but its physical, psychological or cultural expressions may begin earlier and end later. During adolescence, the brain undergoes changes that have important implications for behaviour. There is a direct link between how children feel and how they behave. 

Get advice from an expert on how to handle the challenges that adolescence brings. Join us for a free talk “The Adolescent Brain” by Dr Nate Balfanz (Profile: of the American Medical Centre of Shanghai, on Tuesday 17th January, 6.30pm – 7.30pm at the 3rd floor conference room.
