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 But most of the advice parents and educators hear about teens is outdated and unscientific--and simply doesn't work.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
Summary
A research-backed guide that illuminates the psychological sources of such high-risk teen behaviors as texting while driving, binge drinking, bullying and unprotected sex draws on decades of clinical experience and cutting-edge scientific findings to share anecdotal insights into how to engage in specific teachable activities to promote safe behavior
