Adolescents Are Not an Alien Species,
Just a Misunderstood One
The must-read summary of "The Teenage Brain: A Neuroscientist's Survival Guide to Raising Adolescents and Young Adults," by Frances E. Jensen, MD.
This book explores how adolescent brain functions in learning, multitasking, stress, memory, sleep, addiction, and decision making. It explains why teenagers are not as resilient to the effects of drugs as we thought; reveals how multitasking impacts learning ability and concentration, and examines the consequences of stress on mental health during and beyond adolescence. The book dispels many myths about teens and offers practical suggestions for parents, educators, and the legal system to help teenagers navigate their way into adulthood.
