Summary All teens today, born after 2000, were thrust into a world with challenges and opportunities non-existent for previous generations. The compelling natures of the internet and social media, combined with the accelerated accumulation of information and changing facts, place exceedingly high demands on their brains' still developing critical control centers. Without guided opportunities, though, their brains will not achieve adequate capability to develop these control centers until their late twenties or beyond. While this book is for teens, it is parents, dedicated to their children's success, who will guide them to the book's resources so they can develop the brain circuits they need now, instead delaying a further ten years. Teens will enjoy learning about the neuroscience describing how their brains learn best and then choosing the activities they like, to activate their brain's neuroplasticity to build their essential control networks now. Through the activities and keys in this book, they will assume the drivers' seats as they boost their focus, organization, planning, motivated effort, thoughtful decision making, emotional self-regulation, and memory construction. As teens build the brains they want by using the guided skills they choose, they will embark on the path to achieving their highest potentials, effectively and joyfully.
