Honey, We Lost the Kids: Re-thinking childhood in the multimedia age by Kathleen McDonnell

Wardrobe malfunctions. Supermodel parties. Grand Theft Auto. Goth dolls. Childhood aint what it used to be. The traditional schedule of maturity has been tossed out the window. While many parents worry about the impact of such changes, McDonnell, a mother of two, examines our assumptions about what childhood is and what childhood shoud be -- what parents have a right to be afraid of, and what they should rightfully let go. She shows that there is little reason to be afraid of this cultural shift, that, if anything, it allows our kids to know us, and for us to know them, in a way that parents of the past never imagined. Here, with sensitivity and ambivalence, she shows adults -- both scared and staid -- a way forward. This revised edition notes the impacts of 9/11 on kid and parent culture and offers fresh perspectives on hot new technologies and TV trends.
