In Your Teenager Is Not Crazy: Understanding Your Teen’s Brain Can Make You a Better Parent, Dr. Jeramy Clark and Jerusha Clark discuss the ways in which teens’ brains evolve. The book helps readers understand that many of the behavioral changes that teens experience are natural, and it also provides advice on making family dynamic transitions during the teen years.
I like the book’s interesting mix of science and theology; the authors included sections called “Bio 101” as well as “Faith 101.” This book would be valuable to parents who are frustrated with their teenager’s journey from concrete to abstract thinking. I do not think this guide is intended for parents whose teens are extremely defiant – or for parents whose teens hardly exhibit any behavioral problems; it would be most ideal for parents of teens in the middle of the spectrum.
