The Teen Brain - Nathan Wallis Evening
A collaboration between the Kaipara College PTSA - Parents, Teachers and Students Association and PATHS - Parents And Teachers at Helensville School, is bringing the Aotearoa’s expert neuroscience educator Nathan Wallis to Helensville.
This is a not to be missed opportunity for anyone already raising teens or with children heading into the teen years. During adolescence, part of the teenage brain “shuts for renovations”. This is part of the brain responsible for controlling your teenager’s moods, for understanding consequences and thinking about the well-being of others. So, whilst you can’t expect teens to be able to display these behaviours consistently during adolescence, there are ways that you can enhance and maximise the times when they can. Understanding the changes that are taking place for your teen will help you to navigate successfully these important and formative years.
Teen Brain will be held on Wednesday 14 April, from 7.30pm to 9.00pm at Kaipara College. This is a ticketed event and tickets are available at https://www.eventfinda.co.nz/2021/teen-brain-helensville/auckland/helensville.
