The title has become shorthand for everything that's wrong with children's lives from excessive testing at school to violent computer games, sex, drugs and alcohol. * EVENING STANDARD * There are so many more words of wisdom and warnings about the age our children live in that I can't recommend this book highly enough. The book confirms the vital role all parents play in our children's lives and it equips us to recognise and confront the challenges that our children face so that we can 'detox' their childhood. -- Claire Paye * www.mothersathomematter.co.uk * Horribly convincing * INDEPENDENT * The title has become shorthand for everything that's wrong with children's lives from excessive testing at school to violent computer games, sex, drugs and alcohol. * EVENING STANDARD * Horribly convincing * INDEPENDENT *
