Parents will get the answers they desperately desire and educational professionals will gain tools to help their struggling students. Highly recommended!
When to Worry is long overdue. Worried, frustrated, or confused parents will feel relief within the first few pages. And the book just keeps getting better from there. Excellent resource and so needed.
When to Worry by Dr. Lisa can save families a lot of agony and suffering. I found it to be a very detailed and concise guide in how to weave your way through what can be very confusing and scary (and complicated!). Thank God my daughter has this reference book to turn to for guidance in raising her teenage sons. I have bought copies for everyone in my life who is raising or working with a teenager. And I even donated a few copies to the counselors at the middle school where I live. I wish there were a Dr. Lisa years ago when I was struggling with one of my own children.
Engaging and practical, When to Worry should be mandatory reading for all parents and adults who spend time with adolescents. Lives can be saved with the information in this book. --Donna G. Noonan, MPH, Youth Suicide Prevention Coordinator, Oregon Public Health Division
My work place is full of mothers with teens. We have all gone through rough patches and worse with these kids. I purchased this for us to keep at work and share. It has really helped ease some minds. On the other side it has made some moms realize they need to seek outside help. I recommend for educators and parents both.
Dr. Boesky's book will serve as an invaluable resource for school personnel that work closely with troubled students. All of our staff will be referring parents to this highly enlightening book. --Gregory Minter, MA, Associate Principal, Prospect High School
This state-of-the art book addresses cultural issues, gender issues, and the tough questions parents and professionals want answers to regarding teens who struggle. Parents, teachers, counselors, physicians and nurses NEED this book.
No other book provides such breadth and depth of information on teenage difficulties in language that is easy to understand. --Carol Klenow, Ed.D., President, School Board of Education, Utica Community Schools
You may pick this book to read about a specific teen issue, but will end up reading it cover to cover! The case examples bring the information to life and the solutions are solid. --Ronna Harris, M.S.W., Social Worker, Adoption and Family Care Services
As a mother of a son and daughter, each with many worrisome problems, I learned more, understood more, and received clearer direction from Dr. Boesky’s book than from a dozen others combined. Every parent should have this guidebook “at the ready!” --Elizabeth Lyon, Divorced Mother
I teach in a juvenile justice center school and work with kids who have developed problems that many of them will not outgrow and should have been addressed much sooner. I have many parents come to me trying to tease apart behaviors to figure out if their child is troubled or just moody, heading for danger or just experimenting within an expected range. This book, while not simplistic, is surprisingly easy to understand. I appreciated that it puts things in perspective in a very clear way. Having raised 2 teens myself, I believe that every parent can use this book as they face those tumultuous years. This book goes right to the top of the book list I recommend for parents of teens. Once again, Dr. Boesky gets to the chase and offers realistic help instead of just theory. –Donna Coffeen, Teacher, Juvenile Justice Facility
It's a great read, excellent info, well done! What I really must compliment you on is giving enough information to parents that it provides utility but not too much in-depth info where you might "lose" a parent. I think that type of writing is even good for professionals working in the field because we sometimes make the simple way too complicated. I just mean that your book will be a great tool for parents and professionals alike. I will surely recommend it to others.
I work with children and families as a licensed psychologist. This book was a useful reference for my practice. It distinguishes between teens acting out occasionally and more serious psychological problems. I use it and recommend it for my clients. I have seen Dr. Boesky speak and she is very knowledgeable and friendly. We need more books like this in the field. -Lily Bhattacharya, Psy.D. Clinical Psychologist, "Govinda Guidance"
