    1. Young brains often do not fully activate in girls until about age 20, in boys, as late as 25.

    2. The last part of the brain to develop is the Pre-Frontal Cortex-it controls impulses, organization, moral reasoning, emotional regulation, concentration and prioritizing.

    3. Adolescents often do not fully process cause & effect (another skill of the pre-frontal cortex) so they really DO NOT know why they just did something stupid or why they got in trouble for it.

    4. Young brains need 9-13 hours of sleep daily to concentrate, metabolize sugar and retain information effectively.
