Our Last Best Shot [videorecording]: Guiding Our Children Through Early Adolescence

produced by University Relations, Television News Office, University of Virginia
Format
Video; VHS
Summary
Stepp talks about her study of young middle class adolescents which she performed with the aim of helping adults understand why adolescents 10 to 15 years of age act and they do and what they need from adults. She made four discoveries: (1) adults need to understand the unique developmental needs of these teenagers; (2) the so-called youth culture is misnamed; everyone is part of the culture; (3) the choices these youth are asked to make are more numerous, more difficult, and riskier than the choices most adults had to make when they were that age; and (4) adults make a huge difference in what young people choose. Youth need three things from adults: respect, responsibility, and relationship.
