Welcome To Finding Wisdom In The Jungle

FINDING WISDOM IN THE JUNGLE explores what young people coming of age are rarely taught about the new rights they suddenly receive at age 18 – from medical and financial responsibilities to marriage, employment, and voting.   Since our brains do not fully mature until age 25 or even later, all of this can be a hair-raising experience for teens and their parents.  This book presents an adventure of one teen’s experience learning about some of these new rights.  A book for teens, young adults, their parents, and anyone wanting more information about their rights and responsibilities and how to thrive in the U.S.

Available on Amazon and Kindle.
