Item description

How the teenage brain thinks, feels, learns, and changes on its journey to adulthood. Familiar examples and nontechnical language make this an accessible resource appropriate for rewarding classroom or family discussion.

In this enlightening volume, expert educator Robert Sylvester explains how adults can better understand teenagers through an engaging discussion of the adolescent brain. Readers will learn how to:
  • Mentor adolescents rather than attempt to manage and control them
  • Nurture creativity, imagination, and individuality
  • Understand such critical issues as sexuality and bonding,productivity and vocation, morality and ethics, risk and security, technology and drugs, collaboration and autonomy, and more
