Honey, we lost the kids: Re-thinking childhood in the multimedia age








Honey, we lost the kids

Rethinking childhood in the multimedia age

By Kathleen McDonnell


FROM THE FRONT LINES OF THE REVOLUTION IN 21 CENTURY CHILDHOOD

Frantic boomers, unable to figure out what they have done wrong, ask “Why can’t the kids be like we were?” and particularly “What can we do to change things?”

“Not much,” responds prize-winning author Kathleen McDonnell in her witty, eye-opening report from the front lines of the revolution in modern childhood.

Kathleen McDonnell sympathises with parents and experts who believe that kids today are growing up too quickly, robbed of childhood by a toxic combination of TV, films, video games and the Internet.

Honey, We lost the Kids is a mind-bending, straight talking approach to understanding the challenges of parenting and child rearing today.

Author McDonnell is a Chalmers Award-winning playwright, children’s author and acclaimed essayist.  Her previous books include the best selling Kid Culture and The Nordlings.
