Om boka

Parents and educators too often feel that protecting children against the corrupting influences of the popular culture is futile. This incisive collection of essays offers a helpful understanding of the toxic nature of today's media and some real solutions for providing children with needed guidance. The book is the rarest, and most valuable, form of critique: it exposes an alarming condition that we have come to accept as inevitable and then shows how we can fight our way to a healthier future. -- William Damon, Director, Stanford Center on Adolescence, Stanford University
