The glossy magazines usually focus on young kids, and we may find ourselves looking for new sources of answers to our parenting questions and concerns. Plus, more than ever, we want to feel like we’re not alone. Friends Stephanie Silverman and Susan Borison saw that parents of teenagers were hungry for expert advice and nonjudgmental support. In 2007, they founded Your Teen Media to meet this need.
