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.

  • (5/5)
    Judith Warner set out to write a book about the over-diagnoses and over-medication of children in society, and came away writing a book about the struggles of parents and their children who suffer from mental health issues. This is an unbiased, fair look at the real struggles many face in dealing with ADHD, autism, depression and anxiety, and bi-polar disorder. Warner is compassionate and forthright as she presents her research findings. She also makes realistic suggestions about ways to improve the diagnoses and treatment of those with mental health issues. The book was thought-provoking and view shifting.
