In this “Maggie Moment”, Maggie discusses our vulnerable adolescents. She discusses how we all have a tipping point in terms of our emotional self-regulation, but when we are teens we can be quicker to reach our tipping point because our emotional barometer can be more sensitive. Maggie discusses how we might be able to lessen that tipping point.
Maggie talks more about the teen tipping point in this article. And she discusses when to really worry in this video.
