Summary
Adolescence now lasts longer than ever before. This makes these years the key period in determining an individual's life outcomes and demands that we change the way we parent, educate, and understand young people. Discusses what the new timetable of adolescence means for parenting 13-year-olds versus 20-somethings and explains how the plasticity of the adolescent brain, rivaling that of years 0 through 3, suggests new strategies for instilling self-control during the teenage years
