Parents and kids can experience a lot of conflict as children become teenagers. Ann Arbor public schools is offering parents the chance to see what’s really going on inside the teenage brain.


John Boshoven is chair of the district's counseling department. He says parents constantly ask him what to expect as their kids become teens.

 

He says,

“And kids are going through all kinds of changes physically, emotionally, mentally, and cosmically. What’s normal?”

Boshoven says neuropsychology can offer some of the answers. Tonight at Slauson Middle School in Ann Arbor, Dr. Roger Lauer of the Center for Neuropsychology will explain the changes happening inside the teenage brain to curious parents.

The presentation focuses on young teens between 12 to 14. Boshoven says the event is open to parents and students.
