Full of it.

As a teen myself(16 year old college junior) I decided to listen to this podcast to see how accurate it was. While listening I came to find that the theses mentioned in the podcast rely upon hazy research that is not considered validated. The method of scanning mentioned has been publicly refuted and is not considered admisible in any court system in the word. This podcast uses extreme cases of psychotic behavior and physically deformed brains to set a standard. The way these theories are stated is not only misleading in the fact that the behaviors exhibited by many teens come from physical deformity; but also in the fact that it does not make any major mention of psychological based problems that many teens face. I recomend that anyone who wishes to learn about the thinking method of a teen instead look at the teen(s) in question on a case by case basis, as no two issues are alike; when doing so look at the background, personality type, and setting, as these often can provide a basis for understanding the thought process.

Desperately Needed!

I'm the father of a teen, have many teen nephews and nieces and many friends with teen children. Once thing is clear, any credible insight any of us can get to help us understand what is going on inside the minds of teens and tweens will be very appreciated. Barely a week goes by when I don't hear about the travails of someone I know struggling with a teen. As for the comments posted here by teens. If there is one thing that is clear to me after listening to teens explain why they do or fail to do one thing or another, it's that the last person who understands the mind of a teen is a teen. It's fairly evident that "many" teens have neither the experience, knowledge nor wisdom to fully interpret their actions or the world around them. Not only do they not know, but worse the don't know that they don't know and worst of all they think they do know. I've yet to meet the teen who has said, "I understand that my brain is not fully developed and therefore I am not ready for dating, parties till 3am, to drive the family car or to freely watch anything that comes on TV or the Internet."

That said, we all were teens. I still remember being very sure that I had life and people pretty well figured out by the time I was 18. The attitudes and behaviors aren't knew. Been there, done that, read the book, saw the movie (300 times) bought the tee shirt, the cap and the secret encoder ring.

But perhaps we can get some new understanding on how to manage these challenging years which fortunately eventually pass.

Fail

The only person who will ever understand us are ourselves.
When I behave moody or whatever it's because I'm trying to accomplish a goal and recognize it as a possible course of action. It's true that there is different brain activity going on, but that's the screwed up version of evolution caused by human intervention.
Point is, why screw around with what's natural?
