the difference between adult and teenage brains is the
way that they respond to the emotions of others. And

According to multiple resources on the Internet, the average amount of conscious decisions an adult makes each day is around about 35,000. but on average young children only make about 3,000 decisions each day
things that teenagers can do to help develop their brain in

take risk that you know you can handle.
have creative and expressive outlets.
have a good perspective on what the future might hold.
always get the right amount of sleep per night so you
wake up feeling fresh.
