BORN TO BE WILD Why Teens Take Risks, and How We Can Help Keep Them Safe

by | Read by Jess Shatkin

Personal Growth • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The author, an adolescent psychiatrist with a public health degree, writes and narrates with extraordinary clarity. With his natural cadence and confident tone, he sounds earnest and personal but never too eager to persuade. Most remarkable is the way his writing weaves well-paced personal stories with the observations and research that make up the bulk of the audio's broad-based and satisfying payload. He says that instead of trying to change an adolescent's desire to explore and take risks, we can help them acquire the essential skills of being effective in their endeavors and regulating their emotions. His perspective on these matters sounds at once informed, empowering, and calming. With his audible wisdom making this an easy audio to hear and absorb, it's a must-listen for parents who are struggling in any way with their teenagers.
