Why do teens act the way they do? In Teen Brain, Teen Mind , renowned psychologist Dr. Ron Clavier provides some fascinating answers to this age-old question. In this clear-sighted, accessible look at the teenage mind, Clavier explains how neurological changes in a young person's developing brain underlie many of the emotions and behaviours that can make teens so unpredictable and volatile. In this new edition, Clavier provides updated information on homework, electronic communications and morality. With a healthy dose of humour, he argues that a clear understanding of the teenage brain is the key we need to unlock the mysteries of why our kids act the way they act and think the way they think. From drug use and early sexual activity to fashion and music, Clavier covers topics of relevance to both teens and their parents. Along the way, he offers numerous coping tips and strategies designed to ease tensions and improve communications.
