How parents can keep their children healthy and happy in the modern environment, despite the pressures of a toxic world

Detoxing Childhood Summary

Detoxing Childhood: What Parents Need to Know to Raise Happy, Successful Children by Sue Palmer

When Sue Palmer wrote Toxic Childhood, her ground-breaking book that showed how problems of diet, education, fitness and mental health problems were all inter-related, she created a national debate. Everyone from educationists and scientists to politicians, religious leaders and authors got involved in the debate. The problems seemed potentially overwhelming. Now, in this important successor volume, Sue Palmer provides an essential guide on how to bring up children in a way that avoids the problems of a toxic world. With practical, easy-to-follow advice she explains what children need, in terms of food, play, sleep and talk; what childcare and education will help most; how families can work together for the best, given the hectic pace of 21st century life; and how to turn the electronic village of TV, computers and mobile phones to our advantage. With so many pressures across so many parts of our lives today, this book is the one-stop solution to all our concerns about raising healthy, happy children in the modern world.

Detoxing Childhood Reviews

'Offers a detox workout to change family life for the better.' JUNIOR 'As Sue Palmer eloquently pointed out, formal schooling should start later and we should legislate against advertising directed at children and foster exercise as an alternative to the obesity-inducing, passive consumption of television and computer games.' -- Oliver James TES 'an invaluable resource for all those working with children, with groups of parents in any situation and for community leaders. sue Palmer sees 'parent power' as the hope for childhood's future and this book could be one catalyst to activate that power' HOME AND FAMILY
