Publisher's Summary

As God allows us to understand the mystery and marvel of brain science, we have the exciting opportunity to reexamine our assumptions about human behavior. Perhaps nowhere does this impact our lives more profoundly than when we think about raising children - especially teenagers. Where parents often see a sweet boy or girl who has morphed into an incomprehensible bundle of hormones and angst, what we really ought to be seeing is an amazing young adult whose brain is under heavy construction. And changing the way we see our teens will revolutionize our relationships with them.
Organized by what we hear teens say - things like "I'm bored", "you just don't understand", "why are you freaking out?", "I hate my life!", and "hold on...I just have to send this" - this book helps parents develop compassion for their teens and discernment in parenting them as their brains are progressively remodeled. Rather than seeing the teen years as a time to simply hold on for dear life, Dr. Jeramy and Jerusha Clark show that they can be an amazing season of cultivating creativity, self-awareness, and passion for the things that really matter.

Very useful book

I found this book really helpful. It is useful in the way it is organised, by topic/ comment, although this does mean a little repetition. However, I personally found that this was quite useful in my learning. I feel like I have a much better understanding of how the brain develops during the teen years and also some really helpful tools to use and skills to try. I also found some ideas that were helpful for myself! A great book. Thank you.
