Ask ‘What if?’ before taking action

Posted on

Does your teen often rush into action before thinking? That’s because his brain is still developing. The human brain is not “adult” until the early 20s. And one of the last things to develop is self-control. Rather than scolding him when he acts quickly, encourage your teen to stop before he acts and ask himself, “What will happen if I do this or if I don’t?” It’s great practice for his maturing brain.
