Why So Many Kids Are Not OK


                                                      (Empire Beach sunset (Michigan))

Jonathan Haidt's book The Coddling of the American Mind was so good I read it twice. And refer to it often.

Haidt's new book, The Anxious Generation: How the Great Rewiring of Childhood Is Causing an Epidemic of Mental Illness, comes out in March 2024. Haidt makes a powerful case that the shift from play-based to phone-based childhoods is wreaking havoc on mental health and social development.

Some of you already know this, right?
