As a medical educator, how would you teach a group of parents about why their adolescent boys and girls are acting out? In approximately 3 pages, create a “fact sheet” in MS Word that includes a chart, images, or banners, tables, etc.
Your textbook details a sequence in which the human brain develops. The limbic system, or the seat of emotions and experience of rewards, (p. 344) is said to be completely developed in early adolescence. However, the pre-frontal cortex, also called the, judgement region doesn’t finish developing until at least a person is nearly an adult.
We could reasonably suggest that during the adolescent stage, it may be biologically difficult for a person to wrangle their emotions, impulses, and behaviors.
