Childhood 2.0 - The living experiment
When we were growing up, our parents worried about stranger danger and whether or not we were home by the time the streetlights came on. But for parents raising the first generation of kids with smartphones, everything is different. Childhood 2.0 takes a deep dive into what coming of age really looks like today — and just how much things have changed thanks to technology and social media.
For the first time in history, mental illness and suicide have become one of the greatest threats to school-aged children.
Many parents still view dangers as primarily physical and external, but they’re missing the real danger: kids spending more time online and less time engaging in real life, free play, and autonomy.
What are the effects on the next generation's mental, physical, and spiritual health?
Childhood was more or less unchanged for millennia, but this is CHILDHOOD 2.0
