About this title

Synopsis:

A toxic combination of TV and films, video games and the Internet robs today's kids of their childhoods. Parents were once able to parcel out adult information (sex, death) appropriately as children grew up, allowing a gradual integration into adult life. This straight-talking, mind-bending book tells us that all has changed. In today's media-saturated world, kids routinely see once-forbidden images and words: it's an unfortunately short journey from Blue's Clues to South Park. And we can't return to that mythic time when grown-ups were grown-ups and kids were kids. Whether parents accept it or not, kids are being raised, in part, by the media, and the results are neither pretty-nor predictable. McDonnell challenges parents to get beyond hand-wringing, and be realistic about 21st century childhood in order to help our kids cope with the complex, violent world they're growing up in.
