Product 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.


“A landmark book, a triumph of honesty over bigotry and of patient learning over the rush to judgment.”
      —Edward Hallowell, M.D., co-author of Super Parenting for ADD and author of The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness

“A caring and informed book that will earn the trust and loyalty of a wide audience.”
      —Peter D. Kramer, author of Listening to Prozac

“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.”
      —Alix Spiegel, NPR science correspondent
