We don't all develop at the same age/speed and RESULTS Day is not a FAIL or PASS to life forthcoming ..........

When examining the adolescent brain we find 
mystery, complexity, frustration, and inspiration. 
As the brain begins teeming with hormones, the prefrontal cortex, 
the center of reasoning and impulse control, 
is still a work in progress. 

For the first time, scientists can offer an explanation 
for what parents already know -
- adolescence is a time of rolling emotions, 
and poor judgment. 
Why do teenagers have distinct needs and behaviours? 
Why do secondary school students 
have such a hard time waking up in the morning?
