Summary

Between the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important and often maddening ways. It’s no wonder that many parents approach their child’s adolescence with fear and trepidation. According to renowned neuropsychiatrist Daniel Siegel, however, if parents and teens can work together to form a deeper understanding of the brain science behind all the tumult, they will be able to turn conflict into connection and form a deeper understanding of one another.  

In Brainstorm, Siegel illuminates how brain development affects teenagers’ behaviour and relationships. Drawing on important new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, he explores exciting ways in which understanding how the teenage brain functions can help parents make what is in fact an incredibly positive period of growth, change and experimentation in their children’s lives less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.

Interesting 'bridge' reading for Parent & Teen...

Shared with 13 year old daughter and opened lots of discussions - very insightful experience.

An absolute must for all!

The holy grail of understanding me as a teen and understanding my teenage daughter. I keep coming back to this book it's really helping me through parenting a teen. My daughter won't read it though, so maybe a teen friendly version would be good as she would get so much from it .

Essential listening

What a wonderful book. I think it should be essential reading for parents, prospective parents or anyone interested in the betterment of life and our world.

Daniel's reading was lovely and soothing with an, almost, 'John Boy Walton' feel to it.

It took me a while to get through the book and, whilst listening to it over a series of months the chapter markings were updated (correctly) making it much easier to, finally, digest.

Excellent.

So great .

A must to help navigate your teenage child’s world No your engagement in it . I have already downloaded his other books to get more of the essence of his wonderful knowledge and advise .this book calmed my mind and made sense of what I was experiencing wit( my teenager. A must for every parent . Read the whole series and prepare for every stage . The most wonderful thing is that you learn so much about yourself and therefore are in a better place to help your child and family cope with the changes happening in this busy and blink and you will miss it life .

Yawn

Like this genre for learning, but the author just made this very dull listen. i barely managed a couple of chapters.

Admittedly I do not like american narrators, so it was a double whammy of ear bleed.

Good listen

Book is very rich with exact scientific information which can give you great insight on brain development. If you are a parent or a teacher this is just a must to cover!
