There's hope for childhood. Despite a perfect storm of hostile forces that are robbing children of a healthy childhood, courageous parents and teachers who know what's best for children are turning the tide.

Johann Christoph Arnold, whose books on education, parenting, and relationships have helped more than a million readers through life's challenges, draws on the stories and voices of parents and educators on the ground, and a wealth of personal experience. He surveys the drastic changes in the lives of children, but also the groundswell of grassroots advocacy and action that he believes will lead to the triumph of common sense and time-tested wisdom.

Arnold takes on technology, standardized testing, overstimulation, academic pressure, marketing to children, over-diagnosis and much more, calling on everyone who loves children to combat these threats to childhood and find creative ways to help children flourish. Every parent, teacher, and childcare provider has the power to make a difference, by giving children time to play, access to nature, and personal attention, and most of all, by defending their right to remain children.
Industry Reviews
Stunning... Who would have thought that there was anything new to say about childhood? Arnold surprises us at every turn. -- Diane Komp, MD, Prof. of Pediatrics, Yale University

A deeply inspiring tribute to children...Arnold's basic message is clear, and well worth heeding: a deep reverence for children will make the world a better place. -- Publishers Weekly
Beautiful...It is Arnold's reverence for children that I love. -- Jonathan Kozol
Arnold's respect for the needs of children is evident on every page, and his perspective gives those who work with children a renewed sense of purpose...This is the perfect gift for a favorite teacher or parent. -- Foreword Magazine
Welcome reading for parents, grandparents, teachers and all those who care deeply about nurturing the next generation. -- Marian Wright Edelman, president, Children's Defense Fund
