Understanding the Young Adolescent
Elkind, David
Adolescence, 13, 49, 127-34, Spr 78
Attempts to show that many early adolescent behaviors which adults attribute to bad motives, derive instead from intellectual immaturity as described by Piaget. The apparent hypocrisy of adolescents is often a failure to distinguish between the expression of an ideal and its pragmatic realization. Piaget helps shift a whole new set of behaviors from the realm of the "bad" to that of "behavior typical for this age group". (Author/RK)
