Why Does My Teen Do Crazy Things?
Hudson and I had a great time chatting with Charle about the teenage brain and all the changes it experiences during adolescence. This was such a fascinating conversation! This knowledge can help you understand your teenagers better and lead to a better relationship as you work together to navigate this time.
