Today we discuss with Neurologist Dr. Amanda Opaskar the adolescent  brain and why it is so important for them to get help and guidance as they make the most important financial decisions in their life, namely, taking out student loans.  

Is the average 17-year-old really ready to make super consequential financial decisions on their own?  Do they really know what they are getting into when they sign on the dotted line? What is the adolescent brain like anyway and how does it differ from an adult brain? For answers to questions we’ll talk with Dr. Amanda Opaskar.
