Library Journal, Starred Review

A comprehensive resource on a topic that interests many parents. Will prove essential for parents of children in the elementary through teenage years.  Heitner indicates that a fear-based approach leads to children feeling distrusted. She believes conversation is a wiser strategy than reading texts, though she acknowledges that tracking can feel easier than building trust and having challenging discussions. She also addresses parents’ own social media usage, or “sharenting,” which can cause college pressure, social embarrassment, and discouragement in their children. The book addresses neurodiversity, mental health, and sex and gender identity.
