It's often tough to understand why teenagers do what they do. One moment they're calm and rational, but the next they're agitated and emotional. One day they're making incredibly wise choices, but the next they're making disastrous mistakes. Yesterday they earned your trust, but today it seems they've lost it once again.
Why such inconsistency? Credit their brains.
A Parent's Guide to Understanding Teenage Brains: Why They Act the Way They Do is filled with helpful, practical insights from veteran youth worker Mark Oestreicher.
Without an understanding of teenage brain development, we might miss life's teachable moments or shut down our child's curiosity with easy answers that don't satisfy the search for truth happening below the surface. That's why Mark has written this book: to guide parents through the world of the teenage brain, to help them understand and appreciate the amazing transformations it undergoes in adolescence to prepare children for adulthood and its many responsibilities.
This book will enlighten, encourage, and equip parents. And if you're a youth worker, you'll want to put this book into the hands of parents, as well as your Bible study leaders to help them be informed.
