Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
05/15/2014
Sexuality educator/writer Levkoff (What Your Kids Are Learning About Sex Today) and women's health expert Wider give parents of adolescents a solid question-and-answer-style guide to the many concerns related to teens and their parents. Covering bombs such as: "How can I explain what a blow job is to my child?" to more mundane matters such as sharing passwords (don't do it!), the authors clearly have their fingers on the pulse of teens and their ever-changing world. In a conversational and humorous style, they give parents the support they need to converse honestly with their kids toward the "reality-based parenting that we need today." VERDICT While puberty books are a dime a dozen, this work zeroes in on the peskiest questions that teens ask and gives sound, friendly advice for challenging topics. Recommended with enthusiasm.

    I am a HUGE fan of Dr. WIder's from WakeUP with Taylor on Sirius

    I am a HUGE fan of Dr. WIder's from WakeUP with Taylor on Sirius XM, but this is the first book of hers that I've read. And I LOVED it.  It's really easy to read.  Like Wider who is always full of info and funny at the same time.  Dr. Wider and her coauthor Levkoff have written a book that will easily be my BIBLE as my oldest is now 11.  And I'm less freaked out about puberty with this book by my side.

    Terrific Guide for parents with Tweens and Teens.  Drs. Levkoff

    Terrific Guide for parents with Tweens and Teens.  Drs. Levkoff and Wider wrote a great book, and boy, did I need it.  They offer a ton of information but it isn't overwhelming, in fact, it's downright entertaining.  I'd love to have them as friends because they speak right from the heart.  I am definitely recommending to family and friends.
