When to Worry is truly the one-stop reading that every parent should have and refer to often. If you have a teen—you need this book! --Rick Koca, Founder & CEO, StandUp For Kids
I bought a copy of this book and left it out for the whole family to see, letting my 2 teenagers know that I care enough to be informed. This subject matter is hard to think about or deal with, but Dr. Boesky’s writing style is clear and to the point, which makes it a lot easier to read, comprehend and act on. I wish teenagers were not this difficult, but when they are, this book has really helped. --Tara Hoffman, Mother of a Son & Daughter
Dr. Lisa writes for the layperson. She clarifies some of the most perplexing (and scary) teen behaviors and provides a clear road map for how to handle them. --Peter S. Jensen, M.D. Director, Center for the Advancement of Children’s Mental Health
This book is a must-read for all parents. It is an easy-to-read, well-organized reference tool to help parents decide if their teen is experiencing typical adolescent behavior or if they have a teen in need of help, support, and intervention.
--Sandra A. Spencer, Executive Director, Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health
Dr. Lisa says things that EVERY parent of a teen should hear about. This important book brings it all together.

This book is a wonderful resource and we will recommend it to all of the parents and families that we work with.
--Dr. Candice Seti, Psy.D., Clinical Psychologist, San Diego Family Services
Dr. Lisa, well-versed in adolescence, brings understanding of troubled teens to new heights. The resource section alone is invaluable to parents and professionals. --Barbara Leiner, Director, FosterParents.com
Great resource. Dr. Boesky presents a wide range of complex issues in a sensible and grounded manner. She offers parents and educators the specifics they need to identify problematic behaviors that often emerge during the difficult and confusing teenage years. She offers hope to the frustrated and empowers adults with the knowledge that proper care, management and intervention can have a positive outcome on an adolescent and their future. Highly recommended.

This book was very helpful to me during a totally stressful year in a life of parenting. My son was 17 at the time, and there were days when I considered moving out, it was so bad. Things are much better now, over a year later, but this book did help very much. –Mother
