Current scientific study of the human brain indicates that the adolescent brain is not fully developed/hardwired until they are twenty-five; not four or five like previously believed. Because of this, we as adults need to meet the needs of these young people appropriately. When we see a young adult acting out inappropriately we as a society need to act appropriately. One solution is to: (1) find an approapriate therapist that uses CBT(Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) (2) find a reputable anger management therapist ( try Ernesto at Project Cope in Lynn) (4) Tough Love (Dr. Phil has many useful strategies-contact him (3) involve the young adult in school/work and/or community service. Grown-ups have to step up if we want to decrease the amount/severity of these issues facing today's youth.
