Summary
  • ""We've been there. And as parents, we are right there with you." This is the message of health and sexuality experts Logan Levkoff, PhD and Jennifer Wider, MD--you're not alone, and they're here to help. In Got Teens?, the Doctor Moms combine their medical and psychological knowledge with their own personal experiences to comprehensively address the most cringe-worthy and difficult questions that kids often ask their parents. From "What is a blow job?" to "Why do I hate everyone, including myself?" and beyond, Levkoff and Wider will help you decode your teen's questions to figure out what they really want to know. Addressing topics that include body development, emotional changes, and substance abuse, the book aims to give parents the confidence to tackle these subjects with authority and compassion. By refreshing the readers' knowledge of the "facts" and integrating those facts into the context of open and supportive communication, it is the perfect resource for anyone struggling with "the talks" that are to come. Got Teens? is both supportive and empowering, and the warm, conversational style makes it simultaneously relatable and reassuring -- a resource parents will return to again and again as their children get older"--
