"Circumstances will change, but character is constant." Chris Hudson. This speaks to the heart of resilience, and it seems that this is more important today than ever before. Every day, we get news (good and bad) or how the world around us us changing. We need to affirm our moral compass with resilience.

What's one thing we know about the teen brain? This information from HOWSTUFFWORKS will help:
"What scientists have found is that teenagers experience a wealth of growth in synapses during adolescence. But if you've ever hooked up an entertainment center, you know that more wires means more problems. You tend to keep the components you use the most, while getting rid of something superfluous, like an out-of-date laserdisc player. The brain works the same way, because it starts pruning away the synapses that it doesn't need in order to make the remaining ones much more efficient in communicating. In teenagers, it seems that this process starts in the back of the brain and moves forward, so that the prefrontal cortex, that vital center of control, is the last to be trimmed. As the connections are trimmed down, an insulating substance called myelin coats the synapses to protect them."
Wayne refers to the teen brain and its plasticity in his workshop "Surviving Your Adolescents", which can be booked at www.skills4people.com Put your school on the workshop calendar by emailing us today.

As we approach Remembrance day, this is a great time to reflect on what is important to us - as a country and as individuals. Clearly, those who have fought for the freedoms we enjoy deserve every bit of recognition they are given - both tomorrow and throughout the year. As individuals, this quote may help spark some inner reflection.
