By dissecting their lives, we attempt to illustrate the biology behind the bad behavior. And it's not simply a matter of raging hormones; our teens also act as "lab rats" for experiments that bring the science to life. Our presenter Steve Cannane documents the teens in their natural habitats: at the beach, the mall, the skate park or wild parties. Steve also takes part in many of our "left field" experiments by acting as the adult comparison.
If you believe what you read, the current generation of Aussie adolescents is the wildest yet. It seems they're having more sex than ever before, they're taking bigger risks, their emotions are frazzled, they binge-drink at every given opportunity, they sleep all day or are otherwise glued to their mobile phones or video games.
In this series we explore the latest science that's shedding light on why our cute and cuddly kids transform into these teen terrors. For years we've just put adolescent attitude down to surging hormones, but not anymore. The most recent research is proving that teen behavior is actually a product of intricate and complex biological processes that all serve a purpose in the "bigger picture.

Mr Griffiths said in his experience, it was probably one of the most damaging kinds of abusive relationships. Doctor Hani Miletski, a sex therapist from Cleveland in the United States, has written a book on the subject. She said the types of abuse described by victims ranged from overt acts like intercourse and inappropriate touching, to covert acts like mothers who undressed in front of their sons in a provocative way or watched pornography with them.
Dr Miletski said, as a sex therapist, she had also worked with a number of clients abused in this way. Everybody wants to put their mother on a pedestal.
For such moments as this
Nobody wants to think that they're mother did something that is so horrible. Dr Miletski said when the woman saw the child get an erection, she would then take a rag and rub his genitals. Dr Miletski said some victims of mother-son abuse she had come in contact with also expressed an unfounded fear that they would be branded as sex offenders themselves. Dr Miletski said a range of myths existed about mother-son sexual abuse that allowed a kind of taboo to persist — despite a greater societal understanding of child sexual abuse and rape against males in recent decades.
Dr Miletski said the first myth was that sex abuse meant intercourse, when in fact there were a range of overt and covert ways the abuse could occur. But still people tend to think that boys Dr Miletski said the next myth was that women could not be perpetrators of sexual abuse, a societal belief illustrated by the way in which the media often played down cases of women teachers having sex with male students. The fourth, and possibly the most pervasive myth, is that a mother could never sexually abuse her own child.
Dr Miletski said the final issue that allowed the taboo to exist was that even if these myths could be overlooked, mother-son sexual abuse was often glossed over with excuses about what happened and why. It does happen. As part of her work she is conducting confidential, anonymous surveys — with both the victims of mother-son abuse and with health professionals who have treated them. The early results of her surveys indicated that victims wanted to speak with male, rather than female health practitioners.
A global survey sheds new light on how bad events affect young people
Ms Thomas said that while some health professionals understood the complexities of this kind of abuse, for others it was placed in the proverbial too hard basket. She said her survey responses so far indicated that for victims to get the help they needed, that had to change. The level of trauma that it actually causes in the male child, the long term impact of that trauma and the difficulty they are having in accessing services," she said.
Ms Thomas said the aim of her research was to identify what treatments and support options worked best for victims. Ms Thomas said she hoped to piece together a clearer image of the help victims were seeking and how that could be provided. Ms Thomas's surveys for victims of mother-son abuse and for health professionals who have treated them are ongoing.

New research shedding light on sex abuse committed by mothers against their sons
I was a "young offender", but it wasn't prison or fear of harsh sentencing that turned my life around. This is what changed me. Volkswagen is ending production of its famed Beetle, a car that rose from the ashes of Nazi Germany and was embraced by s counter-culture. We know women experience loads of pressure to become mums, but there is less research into the stigma experienced by childfree men. As you shared, there are some unique burdens for guys who don't want to become dads.
