WHY DO THEY ACT THAT WAY? A Survival Guide to the Adolescent Brain for You and Your Teen

by | Read by Kaleo Griffith

Personal Growth • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Written by a likable school counselor/psychologist, this book has a lot of warmth in its smooth blend of brain science and common-sense ideas about raising teenagers. Kaleo Griffith’s natural clarity and pleasing vocal tone amplify this warmth and make the production relaxing to hear as well as empowering. With palpable kindness and reassuring admiration for the author’s work, it’s the kind of performance that helps this intelligent lesson deliver not just the science and advice but also the wisdom to stand back from the action and look at the big picture when teens become impossibly difficult. The accessible tone of Griffith’s performance and the wealth of developmental psychology insights will help parents keep their balance while implementing the structure teens need to grow their crazy selves into functional adults.
