WE'VE GOT ISSUES Children and Parents in the Age of Medication

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kirsten Potter

Contemporary Culture • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

The gravitas, deft pacing, and emotional complexity in Kirsten Potter’s performance are perfect for this thought-provoking book. Listeners will also be delighted by the clarity and beauty of her voice, which stays vibrant for the entire program. Motivated by the magnitude of child mental health issues, the author offers a smoothly written examination of how such problems are influenced by medication, parental resources, and our increasingly unhinged and demanding society. Her empathetic and wide-ranging research on disorders like depression, attention-deficit disorder, and conduct/socialization problems cuts through the demagoguery we usually hear on these subjects. Without dwelling on drug company corruption or the thoughtlessness of parents, schools, and psychiatry, this is a compelling look at what really helps children become functional adults. T.W.
