Inside the Teenage Brain

New technologies are giving us an unprecendented view of the inner-workings of our brains. So this time on Kids These Days!, we're talking about brain development during a child's teenage years. Adolescent development expert and author, Dr. Laurence Steinberg & UAA's Dr. John Petraitis join us to discuss how your teen's odd or risky behavior could be explained by normal adolescent brain development. Plus, motivational expert to the teens, Josh Shipp aka 'The Teen Whisperer' and a new Dr. KTD. KSKA: Tuesday, 6/5 @ 2p & 7p

The Adolescent Boy

Boys will be boys - but why exactly? We ask what makes adolescent boys 11-14 unique and what changes are their bodies - and their minds - going through at this developmental stage? Do boys and girls really learn differently? And what is necessary to help a boy become a good man? Michael Gurian author of "The Minds of Boys" is our guest. KSKA: Tuesday 9/6 at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm
