The anxious generation : how the great rewiring of childhood is causing an epidemic of mental illness

The anxious generation : how the great rewiring of childhood is causing an epidemic of mental illness

Haidt, Jonathan, author
2024

After more than a decade of stability or improvement, the mental health of adolescents plunged in the early 2010s. Rates of depression, anxiety, self-harm, and suicide rose sharply, more than doubling on most measures. Why? In The Anxious Generation, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt lays out the facts about the epidemic of teen mental illness that hit many countries at the same time. He then investigates the nature of childhood, including why children need play and independent exploration to mature into competent, thriving adults. Haidt shows how the "play-based childhood" began to decline in the 1980s, and how it was finally wiped out by the arrival of the "phone-based childhood" in the early 2010s. He presents more than a dozen mechanisms by which this "great rewiring of childhood" has interfered with children's social and neurological development, covering everything from sleep deprivation to attention fragmentation, addiction, loneliness, social contagion, social comparison, and perfectionism.

A cheeky celebration of boobies! "You have just opened a book about boobies." Meet the Blue-footed Booby, who does not have any boobies at all, since only mammals have boobies.

And did you know that boobies vary from person to person, that boobies change over time, and that different animals have different numbers of boobies? Witty and wide-ranging, this eye-opening picture book goes on to explore connections between boobies and mountains, boobies and ancient art and, of course, boobies and you!

"For most of her life, Taylor O'Shea preferred being a loner. After her mother was incarcerated when Taylor was seven, she grew up hard-thanks in part to her construction-worker grandfather who made her tough as nails.

With her best friends in tow, she heads to Arizona to face the woman whose bad choices shaped the very woman Taylor has become. But the family reunion brings disappointment and even more surprises, leaving Taylor with more questions than answers. Now that Taylor's discovered she has a half-brother, Lonnie, she sets out to find him. Helping him rebuild a life worth living becomes a mission that may save not just Lonnie but Taylor herself. Sometimes, however, helping family can push you to the breaking point." -- Back cover.
