About the Authors:
We are both clinical psychologists, married, and raising two boys, 13 and 16
years old. So far, the boys share that it isn't too bad having two parents who
are child psychologists. One is in middle school and the other is in high
school, so they are in the throws of the Instant Gratification Generation. As
parents, we  face the same daily challenges  of raising kids in this
generation as the parents who will be reading this book.
