What if there were simple solutions you could take that would minimize the risk taking while helping you form a deeper relationship with your teen?
Texting while driving. Binge-drinking. Unprotected sex. There are plenty of reasons for you to worry about getting a late-night call about your teen.
But not anymore. 
Acclaimed adolescent psychiatrist and educator Jess Shatkin brings more than two decades' worth of research and clinical experience to the subject, along with cutting-edge findings from brain science, evolutionary psychology, game theory, and other disciplines -- plus a widely curious mind and the perspective of a concerned dad himself. 
Find out why "scared straight," adult logic, and draconian punishment don't work 
Learn why the teen brain is "born to be wild"--shaped by evolution to explore and take risks
Find out the surprising role of brain development, hormones, peer pressure, screen time, and other key factors
Learn what you can do in everyday interactions & teachable moments to work with teens' need for risk, rewards and social acceptance, not against it
In this 45-minute class, Dr. Jess Shatkin offers powerful insight on why it is that the traditional methods for discouraging risk-taking don't work, the everyday activity that is actually INCREASING the length of time your teen is likely to engage in risk-taking, and how you can talk to your kids in a way that will have the greatest impact on their decisions. 

This is a must-have resource for EVERY parent. The long-held belief that kids think they're invincible is simply not accurate and is leading us to educate our kids in a way that's not effective.

Learn the simple strategies you can use as a parent to reduce the risk your kids take and keep them safe.

This is an incredible book. The author's self-disclosure, personal parenting stories and talent for explaining neuroscience in a dignified, non-pandering way to the reader are stunning. As a doctor and a mother with a family history of untreated anxiety and heavy addictions, I was panicking as I saw the tween years approaching as to how to stack the odds so my boys did not become prey to these issues.

I'm recommending this book to the parents of every child I see, regardless of age. Thank you to Dr. Shatkin for taking the time to write this and for doing so in a way that is valuable in terms of doctoring and parenting. It will change the way I do both.

Dr. Shatkin’s book is based on science and at the same time is very easy to read. Dr. Shatkin debunks myths in healthcare and guide us to do what science indicates it works: from parenting interventions, physical activity, limiting access to “screens”, to the benefits of mindfulness and gratitude. Highly recommended to every parent, but especially for the parents of tweens and teens and probably also for the parents of young adults. Very important book also for teachers. Thanks your Dr. Shatkin! I will add it today to my “formulary” of books I prescribe to my patients.
