I can't say how much this book has helped me, my teenager, my relationship with my husband and our general well-being. Life in our house was extremely tense once teenagehood set in. So much anger and tension. And I felt utterly helpless. By reading What Are They Thinking?!, I was finally able to understand what was going on with my kid, WHY he was acting the way he was acting. Most importantly, we were able to change the tenor of the household as a result. Things are so much better now. THANK YOU AUTHORS for writing this incredible book.

This book is an absolutely OUTSTANDING guide to understanding teen behavior and potentially avoiding the pitfalls. I strong recommend it for parents (and grandparents) of teens as well as pre-teens. Kudos to the authors for creating this highly enjoyable book, e.g., the technical details are understandable and it's an easy read with even some humor injected to lighten it in places.

Written by two PhD's in the field who also happen to be parents of teenagers, this is a great book for parents, teachers, and adolescents.

The authors do a nice job of dealing with the issues that worry adults most about teenagers. Food, school, sex, sleep, stress, drugs, driving, video games, violence, brain development, mental health are all covered.

As a PSY 121 Instructor, I especially admire the way these authors explain the parts of the brain. The language is clear and understandable enough for a high school student/college freshman (or their parent) to grasp. The authors explain both why kids do the things they do, and also what the repercussions on their brains may be.

This book is a keeper.

It is a book written about how the brain functions in teens and why they do the things they do. If a teen read it, it would probably give them excuses of why they behave the way they do.
