Tweens and teens are notorious for acting without thinking, and in fact their brains aren’t fully wired to connect choices and consequences. Join us for an interactive presentation on how adolescent brains work (and how they don’t) and how parents can use neuroscience and nature to promote social-emotional skills. Michelle Albright, a licensed clinical psychologist, will share strategies to enhance children’s self-awareness, communication and decision making skills. Cosponsored by Weston Middle School PTO.
