Why Do They Act That Way? is the first book to explain the
changes in teens' brains and show parents how to use this
information to understand, communicate with, and stay
connected to their kids. Through real-life stories, Dr.
Walsh makes sense of teenagers' many mystifying, annoying,
and even outright dangerous behavioral difficulties and
provides realistic solutions for dealing with everyday as
well as severe challenges. Dr. Walsh's techniques include,
among others: sample dialogues that help teens and parents
talk civilly and constructively with each other, behavioral
contracts, and Parental Survival Kits that provide practical
advice for dealing with issues like curfews, disrespectful
language and actions, and bullying. With this arsenal of
strategies, parents can help their kids learn to control
impulses, manage erratic behavior, cope with their changing
bodies, and, in effect, develop a second brain.
