This very interesting article talking about research carried out on teenage risk taking.

• whilst more prone to risk taking they’re much less likely when on their own
• 14 is the riskiest age
• teens are more prone to embarrassment 
• they’re less likely to learn from punishment
• teens are more visually creative than adults
• memory temporarily dips at puberty

We need to understand, nurture and celebrate this period of time and ensure we don’t demonise it.
