The award-winning PBS documentary program Frontline gets to the heart of this question, “Inside the World of the Teenage Brain“. It is a must-watch for all youth leaders. It’s a well-researched, and fascinating roller-coaster ride through the wicked synapses of a teenager’s command-and-control center.
But the tragedy is that when you watch a detailed documentary and think that you have figured everything about teen brain, it has already morphed into something entirely different. Also knowing what is on their mind is no clue to know what is on their hearts. Unless we know what goes in the heart and head of todays teens, we can never help them love God with their heart and mind.
