Child psychiatry for beginners


Dear Hillary,

My 12 year old daughter is starting to take an interest in boys. Is this dangerous or not?


Dear Grant,

What do you think I am? A child psychiatrist? A family psychologist? How can I possibly suggest anything for a 12 year old? That’s your problem, not mine. Get your wife to talk to her. It is normal for girls to show an interest in boys as they grow up.
