Ginsburg, MD, MS Ed, FAAP, is an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and practices adolescent medicine at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

"The esteemed Ginsburg (Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania) presents a true gem, which beautifully balances such questions as: 'How do I protect my child while letting her learn life's lessons?' with poignant specifics, "You might be tempted to do what comes easily; you might even feel like you're a natural, but you'll get bored if you lack interest and the field doesn't challenge you," to create an inspiring yet task-oriented read. Interspersed with heartfelt quotes from youngsters, the narrative will renew parents' appreciation for the struggles of growing up and the oh-so-important things parents do and say that make a difference. VERDICT: With an easy style and research-based advice, Ginsburg has his finger on the pulse of today's parents and children. Read. Learn. Do." Library Journal starred review "Have you ever heard of 'lighthouse parenting'? If not, it's about to change your world ..." -Family Circle "... eloquent, insightful, and compassionate ... the views of both parents and teens are artfully woven into a narrative that models collaboration and mutual respect ... Ginsburg is unmatched in his ability to synthesize the latest research and drill down to the core essentials of any parenting issue."- Lonnie Stonitsch, Exec. Director, Family Action Network " ... what you'll learn reads like poetry, and the threads of advice and woven-in quotations from teens make fair parenting with thoughtful love feel very possible... Dr Ginsburg's approach blended with science, anecdotes, and expertise from all angles can help us parent with the love we want while providing the protection we know is essential." -Wendy Sue Swanson, MD, MBE, FAAP, Author, Mama Doc Medicine "Wading through conflicting "expert" parenting advice is challenging. Applying that knowledge for your own family in real time can be downright overwhelming ...We can always count on Dr Ginsburg to translate the best of research and practice into language we can understand and to coach us on structured strategies we can use at home ... what takes this book to the next level is the richness of the youth voices included in these pages... Dr Ken's books are required reading for parents in our practice." -Susan Sugerman, MD, MPH, Girls to Women Health and Wellness, Dallas, TX " ... Dr Ginsburg masterfully synthesizes 2 decades of research on best practices with suggestions on how parents can creatively apply these principles to help their kids make real-life decisions in real time... Perhaps what I like best is that he wrote this book with his 2 teenaged daughters, Ilana and Talia. Their perspective, and that gleaned from interviews of more than 500 diverse young people across the country, is infused throughout ... listening to other people's children is a great starting point for really hearing our own. -Martie Bernicker, Executive Director, SpeakUp!" "America's favorite pediatrician, colleague, and expert on resilience is thankfully back. Ginsburg reminds us once again that the sine qua non of effective parenting is unconditional love and high expectations...Here he synthesizes research with practical expert-driven advice and weaves it together with the views from more than 500 youth to help us learn how to apply these foundational principles in our complicated world ..." - Madeline Levine, PhD; Author, The Price of Privilege and Teach Your Children Well
