MoreTo gain deeper insight into the developmental opportunities and risks that adolescents experience in their free time, this volume explores adolescents daily leisure experience across countries. Each chapter describes the sociocultural contexts in which adolescents live, along with a profile of free-time activities. Collectively, the chapters highlight the differences and similarities between cultures- how family, peers, and wider social factors influence the use of free time- which societies provide more freedom and at what costs- and how adolescents cope with restricted degrees of freedom and with what consequences on their mental health and well-being.

Adolescence worldwide is a life period of role restructuring and social learning. Free-time activities provide opportunities to experiment with roles and develop new adaptive strategies and other interpersonal skills that have an impact on development, socialization, and the transition to adulthood. Leisure provides a rich context in which adolescents can gain control over their attentional processes and learn from relationships with peers, but it also has potential costs, such as involvement in deviant and risk behaviors. This volume is a valuable contribution to the research and discussion of this critical topic.This is the 99th volume in the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development.
