For days now I've been trying to write about Judith Warner's new book We've Got Issues: Children and Parents in the Age of Medication. I can't. I've got issues! Not with the book, at least not with the whole book. I have some issues with the first forty pages but after those are done I think Warner gives us sound reporting, a good discussion of cultural biases and fears, and reasonable conclusions. Does that sound vague? I mean for it to sound vague. Warner's pretty pro-medication but she's also pro-parents trying to figure things out for their kids with the best resources available to them, and since I'm one of those parents (my son has sensory issues), I was glad to read her book.
Still, it'd be much easier for me to blog about the divorce of Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes. I was sad to read about it, but from what the tabloids have to say, they had some issues....and some friends, if you know what I mean. (And if you don't, read here and here. Thanks to Jezebel for the links and naming why I care.)
