This easy-to-read book illuminates the often “crazy making” behavior of teens. Dr. Siegel is a master at taking very complicated neuroscience information and putting it into everyday terms that are easy for the average parent to understand. The teenage brain is undergoing a major remodeling, and often skills that were once present are unavailable during this reconstruction. The book is written in sections of information followed by sections on how to improve certain skills. It is written for both teen and parent audiences. The skills presented are easy to practice and can help your teen fill in some of the missing pieces they did not get in orphanage care. I highly recommend this to all parents of tweens or teens, adopted or not.
