Books for Parents -- What we're reading...

The Teenage Brain - a neuroscientist's survival guide to raising adolescents and young adults. by Frances E Jensen, MD with Amy Ellis Nutt
For many years, scientists believed that the adolescent brain was essentially an adult one. Over the last decade, however, neurology and neuroscience have revealed that the teen years encompass vitally important stages of brain development. Interweaving clear summary and analysis of research data with anecdotes drawn from her years of experience, the author explores adolescent brain functioning and development in the context of learning and multitasking, stress and memory, sleep, addiction, and decision making. Her findings not only dispel commonly held myths about teens but also yield practical suggestions.
