Yes, it’s true. Your teenager’s brain is an idiot. But it’s supposed to be! According to research, the brain is only about 80% developed by adolescence, and it isn’t until age 25-30 that our brains are fully developed.
We can’t stop our kids from doing all the things their idiot brains tell them to do, but we can mitigate destructiveness or rebellion. Spend time with your kids. Help them. Love them. Try to understand them. Don’t be reactive. Most importantly, share the gospel with them and live the gospel alongside of them.
