Product description


Horribly convincing (INDEPENDENT)

The title has become shorthand for everything that's wrong with children's lives from excessive testing at school to violent computer games, sex, drugs and alcohol. (EVENING STANDARD)

There are so many more words of wisdom and warnings about the age our children live in that I can't recommend this book highly enough. The book confirms the vital role all parents play in our children's lives and it equips us to recognise and confront the challenges that our children face so that we can 'detox' their childhood. (Claire Paye www.mothersathomematter.co.uk)

A fascinating account of the problems facing kids today... it contains solid parenting advice on subjects ranging from diet to childcare. (SAINSBURY'S MAGAZINE)

'A splendid book that draws together a vast swathe of the most authoritative research from a whole range of fields and disciplines ¿ that together explain ¿the worsening behaviour of children and the explosion in numbers of special needs pupils¿ (THE MOTHER)

Every parent should read this book, as it does contain a wealth of information you should know (EVENING HERALD)

Book Description

One in six children in the developed world is diagnosed as having 'developmental or behavioural problems', and the number is rising by 25% each year - this book explains why and shows what can be done about it
