Born to be Wild Why Teens Take Risks, and How We Can Help Keep Them Safe

Born to be Wild Why Teens Take Risks
Oh am I in trouble. I have two teenage boys. I was hoping this book would help me help them make good choices as we navigate the teen years.  This is not that book.  This is a fascinating, very detailed explanation of how evolution  is perfectly willing to sacrifice our teens for the betterment of the human species.  I kid you not! When you as "What were you thinking?" ans they answer "I don;t know."  This is really what is going on, the prefrontal cortex was not being utilized.  By design.  The teen age brain is working exactly as it is designed to work.  It does not function the way an adult brain works.  This really is a must read for parents of teens.
