Manic cake-baking at midnight. After-school activities and young social lives that require dedicated and complex organisation. Mother-of-the-birthday-boy meltdowns. No Sex. No Nights out. No Sleep. Ever. What's wrong with this picture? That's the question Judith Warner asked herself after taking a good, hard look at the world of modern motherhood, at anxious women at work and in bed with unhappy husbands. By moving personally between the worlds of stay-at-home and working motherhood, interviewing numerous women and reading and seeing what our popular culture and politicians had to offer on the subject of motherhood in our time, Warner comes to a stark conclusion: that what is now happening in the culture of motherhood is nothing less that perfect madness. Written in a lively, accessible and often amusing tone, this is a book that all mothers will be able to relate to.

In her provocative new book, New York Times-bestselling author Judith Warner explores the storm of debate over whether we are overdiagnosing and overmedicating our children who have "issues." In Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety, Judith Warner explained what's gone wrong with the culture of parenting, and her conclusions sparked a national debate on how women and society view motherhood. Her new book, We've Got Issues: Children and Parents in the Age of Medication, will generate the same kind of controversy, as she tackles a subject that's just as contentious and important: 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? What Warner discovered from the extensive research and interviewing she did for this book is that passion on both sides of the issue "is ideological and only tangentially about real children," and she 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. 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.

Budo ist der beste Freund, den sich der achtjährige Max vorstellen kann. Eben weil er sich ihn nur vorstellt. Doch eines Tages wird Max nicht länger an ihn glauben und Budo wird aufhören zu existieren. So weit ist es jedoch noch nicht. Denn Max ist anders als die anderen Jungen: Er mag es nicht, wenn man ihn berührt, er liebt es, Dinge zu ordnen, er schaut Menschen ungern in die Augen. Kein Wunder, dass die Schule ein einziger Spießrutenlauf für ihn ist. Als die Lehrerin Mrs Patterson ein verdächtiges Interesse an Max bekundet, spitzt sich die Situation jedoch zu, so dass Budo eine dramatische Entscheidung treffen muss. Klug, schräg, spannend und oft umwerfend komisch erzählt Matthew Dicks davon, dass man beileibe nicht echt sein muss, um ein wahrer Freund zu sein.
