Enhance your purchase
Frequently bought together
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
About the Author
Sue Palmer is a writer, broadcaster and consultant on the education of young children. She is well-known to UK teachers as a specialist in literacy, especially the teaching of writing, but concern about children's lifestyles led her to research and publish the bestselling book TOXIC CHILDHOOD: How the Modern World Is Damaging Our Children and What We Can Do About It, followed in 2007 by a practical handbook for parents, DETOXING CHILDHOOD: What Parents Need to Know to Raise Bright, Balanced Children, and her most recent book 21ST CENTURY BOYS. Sue is also a popular speaker, addressing thousands of teachers each year across the UK and around the world - and increasingly invited to address audiences of parents, health professionals and others concerned with children's well-being. She writes frequently in the national press, and has worked as a consultant to the National Literacy Trust, the Basic Skills Agency, many educational publishers, the Department for Education and the BBC.

Today's children are our next generation of adults. They will be the ones running our countries as we age. Invest in them now with your time, attention and dose of understanding about how our modern conveniences have lead us to overlook some of the simple but attention intensive aspects of raising kids. Raising children is not just one more thing to add to the list of things we can add to our multi-tasking list. Sue Palmer explains why.
