Lamenting risk-averse parents, overstructured school days, and a lack of playtime and solitude, Mercogliano argues that we are robbing our young people of ''that precious, irreplaceable period in ...show moretheir lives that nature has set aside for exploration and innocent discovery,'' leaving them ill-equipped to face adulthood. The ''domestication of childhood'' squeezes the adventure out of kids'lives and threatens to smother the spark that animates every child. Mercogliano tells us how to protect children's exuberance, address their desperate thirst for knowledge, and give them space to explore what their place in the adult world might be. ''Mercogliano is, in effect, a cultural therapist . . . a purveyor of hope.'' -Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia ''With deep insight, Mercogliano shows . . . how we can help young people break through conventional restraints and pursue their passions. This is a beautiful, searching, and inspiring book.'' -William Crain, author of Reclaiming Childhood ''A very strong and attractive book.'' -John Taylor Gatto, author of Dumbing Us Down ...show less
