more about your teen media

your teen developed out of personal passion but grew out of universal need. friends, stephanie silverman and susan borison, saw that their own parenting concerns and fears resonated with most everyone they polled. as they were wondering whether their teens’ struggles were normal, or whether their parenting woes were typical, other parents were dealing with the same insecurities. unfortunately, the books and magazines they had relied on when their children were younger didn’t help much with teenagers. and so, your teen media was born.

these days, we’re pleased to say that your teen is a leading source for parents seeking high-quality information and advice about raising teenagers. we couldn’t be prouder.

please visit the official your teen media website for more information.
