Honey, We Lost the Kids

Honey, We Lost the Kids Re-thinking Childhood in the Multimedia Age

"Honey, we lost the kids - the lament of many parents in the 21st century." "Frantic boomers, unable to figure out what they have done wrong, ask "Why can't the kids be like we were?" and particularly "What can we do to change things?" "Not much," responds prize-winning author Kathleen McDonnell in her funny, eye-opening report from the front lines of the revolution in modern childhood. She sympathizes with parents and experts who believe that kids today are growing up too quickly, robbed of childhood by a toxic combination of TV, films, video games and the Internet." "Yet "We can't go back to a time when growing up happened in well-defined stages," McDonnell argues. It's a different world, and the old rules simply don't apply." "Honey, We Lost the Kids is a mind-bending, straight-talking approach to understanding the challenges of parenting and child rearing today."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
