Understand your adolescent!

At last, David Walsh offers help to parents and teachers of adolescents to explain just "why they act that way'" This book won't solve all your problems but you will at least have an understanding of their behavior and the maturational calendar that governs it. This book provides you with the science you need to explain why alcohol and pot are very bad choices for your teen or student. A group of parents and teachers read this book together after school and found it very satisfying. Moms and Dads may want to read this together. We had lots of "aha" moments during our discussions.
