Product Description & Reviews

A groundbreaking, research-based guide that sheds new light on why young people make dangerous choices - and offers solutions that work. Texting while driving. Binge drinking. Bullying. Unprotected sex. There are plenty of reasons for parents to worry about getting a late-night call about their teen. But most of the advice parents and educators hear about teens is outdated and unscientific - and simply doesn't work. Acclaimed adolescent psychiatrist and educator Jess Shatkin brings more than two decades' worth of research and clinical experience to the subject, along with cutting-edge findings from brain science, evolutionary psychology, game theory, and other disciplines - plus a widely curious mind and the perspective of a concerned dad himself. Using science and stories, fresh analogies, clinical anecdotes, and research-based observations, Shatkin explains: Why "scared straight", adult logic, and draconian punishment don't work. Why the teen brain is "born to be wild" - shaped by evolution to explore and take risks. The surprising role of brain development, hormones, peer pressure, screen time, and other key factors. What parents and teachers can do - in everyday interactions, teachable moments, and specially chosen activities and outings - to work with teens' need for risk, rewards, and social acceptance, not against it.
