About the Author

Frank Furedi is Professor of Sociology at the University of Kent in Canterbury. During the past decade his research has been concerned with the culture of fear in relation to issues such as health, children, education, food, terrorism and new technology. Since the publication of his study Paranoid Parenting (new edition to be published in October 2008), Furedi has explored problems associated with inter-generational relations, education and childhood. Currently he is writing a book-Lost In Education-that questions the way society educates children and young people.Jennie Bristow is a journalist and mother of two pre-school girls. She writes the monthly 'Guide to Sub-versive Parenting' for the online publication spiked (www.spiked-online.com), and summer 2008 sees the launch of her new website Parents With Attitude.

We all know common sense is nowhere near as common as it used to be, and this is a salutary reminder that its substitute - pettyfogging bureaucratic regulation - spreads a poisonous atmosphere all around. The sooner a few more people in control of almost every aspect of our lives read this, the sooner we may get back to living in a halfway bearable society in which your average well-meaning adult is not seen first and foremost as an as-yet-unspotted danger.

This is a book to make you think. It considers the issues around safeguarding children and how we might just be going over the top in our concerns, and causing problems in the realtionships between adult volunteers and children.
