Reviews

"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."
