You raise a cute little child, all sweetness and round. And a couple of years later you find yourself sharing a home with an edgy, mouthy teenager who rolls his or her eyes at you more than you can count. And if that's not enough, you find yourself in a constant struggle with this little dude. You both enter endless cycles of rants, screams, and banging doors.
Why is that? And does it have to be like that? (spoiler: it doesn't)
In this episode, I break down the Drama of the Teenage Brain, helping you understand what is going on in your teenage kid's mind, and why they act so weird.
- What's the difference between the emotional and thinking brain
- Why your teenage child thinks like an adult and acts like a child
- How to approach your child in times of anger

Your Host – Eran Katz
I’m a clinical psychologist and parenting counselor specializing in attachment theory. I’m also the father of two children who are my best parenting teachers.
I believe that parenting is one of the most important jobs we ever do. This is why I created Apparently Parent and The Parenting MAP. My goal in life is to help as many parents as possible become 21st Century Parents, moving from chaos to harmony and building an enduring, meaningful relationship with their children.
