Summary
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 But most of the advice parents and educators hear about teens is outdated and unscientific and based on the rates of teen pregnancy, accidents, addiction, and more. Acclaimed adolescent psychiatrist Jess P. 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. 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
