“I love having Brain, Child’s support in navigating these even murkier waters” – A. Coulter

Welcome to Brain, Child’s special issue devoted to parents of teens and tweens. Because raising a teen is different than raising a child, we dedicate this special issue of Brain, Child to parents of teenagers (or soon-to-be-teenagers).

This issue features an exclusive essay by bestselling author Ann Hood, as well as work from your favorite Brain, Child writers who once again examine life with their teens in thought provoking essays designed to provide readers with different perspectives on what many say are the most challenging of the parenting years. Whether you have teens now or want some insight into the years ahead, this issue is for you.
