Fueled by the rapid pace of technology, the Instant Gratification Generation not only expects immediate solutions to problemsthey're more dependent than ever on adults. Today's kids are being denied opportunities to make mistakes, and more importantly, to learn from them. They are being taught not to think.

We wrote this book because we have seen a significant change in the issues that we address in therapy over the past five to seven years. There has been a dramatic increase in the intense reliance in instant gratification with so many of the kids we see.
Teaching Kids to Think provides professional insight into the social, emotional, and neurological issues unique to this generation, and offers tip-friendly solutions for problems relevant to raising children of all ages.
