The Doctor Moms are funny, honest, and intelligent. Got Teens? is a must-read for any parent with a child in the throes of puberty. This book will become both your bible and your survival guide.”
Debra Hauser, MPH, President, Advocates for Youth
Finally, a book with actual research by real experts that backs up moms like me when we tell our teens they are normal . . . and quells our fears when we worry that they aren’t.”

"Yes, parents could just hand kids a couple of Judy Blume books, tell them to have at it, and then answer any questions. But the world has changed a lot since the 1970s, and as great as Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret was (and is), it doesn’t tackle social media, sexting or eating disorders. . . . Got Teens goes over acne, sleep problems, dating relationships, abuse, how to teach your children to be responsible with social media and everything between."

That's why "Got Teens" is such a find for the modern parent. Not only are the authors extremely knowledgable about the modern day situations our children face, they have great approaches to communicating with your children about them. There is a feeling when you read this that both Wider and Levkoff remember distinctly what is was like to be a pre teen- teenager. While they take their jobs as educators very seriously they really calm your fears that your child is not the only one facing a particular obstacle. The big plus is that they do all this with a wonderful sense of humor. I could not recommend this book enough.
