Books we love
The Anxious Generation
JONATHAN HAIDT

The Anxious Generation

An urgent and insightful investigation into the collapse in youth mental health, from the influential social psychologist and international bestselling author.

In this book, Haidt makes a compelling argument that the loss of play-based childhood and its replacement with a phone-based childhood that is not suitable for human development is the source of increased mental distress among teenagers.

Raising Humans in a Digital World

Sexting, cyberbullying, revenge porn, online predators… all of these potential threats can tempt parents to snatch the smartphone or tablet right out of their children’s hands. While avoidance might eliminate the dangers, that approach also means your child misses out on technology’s many benefits and opportunities.  We love how this book empowers kids to navigate the digital realm and gives useful tips for busy families to slip into daily routines.
