And it’s not simply that our diagnostic ability has improved there are very real and growing problems. Top literacy expert Sue Palmer examines the danger zones, from poor diet, lack of exercise, and sleep deprivation to symptoms emerging from our modern lifestyle of TV, computer games, and cell phones. This combination of factors, along with parents’ increasingly stressful lives, means that we are developing a toxic new generation, with its health and brains at risk. Here is the latest research from around the world, with advice for worried parents on protecting their families and ensuring their children emerge as healthy, intelligent, and happy adults.

Review:

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 *
