“Dr. Carlsson-Paige is dedicated to the well-being of children. In Taking Back Childhood, she provides real-life examples for preserving children’s creative play and relationships from the unhealthy onslaught of media and technological distractions. I highly recommend it.”
—Alvin F. Poussaint, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School and Judge Baker Children’s Center
“Taking Back Childhood brims with practical advice for the challenges parents face today. Nancy Carlsson-Paige speaks with emotional wisdom.”
—Daniel Goleman, author of the New York Times bestsellers Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence
“If you are like most parents, you're worried about the new realities of childhood – violence, sexualization, the speed-up of daily life, materialism – topics which are not adequately covered in the classic parenting guides. How much TV? What to do when a child is disrespectful? What's causing the tantrums or excessive anxiety? Nancy Carlsson-Paige's brilliant new book shows parents how to navigate the treacherous waters of our culture, and our children's reactions to it. Based on decades of research, teaching, and practice in the philosophy of child-development, she returns us to the basic needs of creativity, security, and connection. As you read it, I suspect it will not only profoundly affect how you parent, but also how you live your own life. Taking Back Childhood deserves to take its place among the classics, read and re-read by parents everywhere.”
—Juliet B. Schor, author of Born to Buy; Professor of Sociology, Boston College
"With Taking Back Childhood, Dr. Carlsson-Paige explains the many ways our culture and media are threatening our children's healthy development. She gives adults concrete strategies for fighting back. Today's parents need this book."
—Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund
