Episode Description

Some adolescents become adults safely, capably, and independently while others do not. Research shows that becoming an adult for humans and animals depends on mastering four critical skills: staying safe from predators and exploiters; finding one’s place in social groups; communicating sexual consent; and living independently. Studying adolescent animals helps us understand human adolescents as a planet-wide tribe, with shared behaviors and conditions such as: Easy Prey if they are seen by predators and exploiters as less aware, weaker, and unprotected, therefore singled out for attack; or Privileged Creatures if they have high-status parents with rank, social networks, territories, and more, giving them an advantage over lower-status adolescent animals. There are counterintuitive insights that can be game changing like: peer pressure and risk-taking improve safety. Please join us Thursday to learn how to maximize the potential and minimize the danger of this developmental stage.
