Description

Are parents and physicians too quick to prescribe medication to control our children’s behavior? Are we using drugs to excuse inept parents who can’t raise their children properly?

Judith Warner sparked a national debate on how women and society view motherhood with her previous book Perfect Madness.We’ve Got Issues will generate the same kind of controversy, as she tackles a subject that’s just as contentious and important. Warner cuts through the jargon and hysteria to delve into a topic that for millions of parents involves one of the most important decisions they’ll ever make for their child: whether or not to put them on behavior-modifying medication.

Insightful, compelling, and deeply moving, We’ve Got Issues is for parents, doctors, and teachers—anyone who cares about the welfare of today’s children.

Praise For We've Got Issues: Children and Parents in the Age of Medication

“Warner ultimately does a good job of explaining just how complicated these issues are. It’s interesting to be in her company as she successfully sorts through a mass of apparently contradictory material about kids and drugs.”
