Wayne is a 12-year-old who has had limited engagement with the others his age. He is an only child who was raised in a very rigid religious home environment where such play, television programs, and music were not things he routinely experienced like other children his age. Wayne was recently removed and placed in a family environment where he has ongoing exposure/contact with electronics, music, and teen social interactions. Discuss how the limited exposure Wayne has had thus far has affected his ongoing growth based on the text learning, as well as how to assist Wayne in fostering creativity in his life now as young teenage male.
