(Their Name Is Today: Reclaiming Childhood in a Hostile World)
by Johann Christoph Arnold
There’s hope for childhood. Despite a perfect storm of hostile forces that are robbing children of a healthy childhood, courageous parents and teachers who know what’s best for children are turning the tide.

Johann Christoph Arnold, whose books on education, parenting, and relationships have helped more than a million readers through life’s challenges, draws on the stories and voices of parents and educators on the ground, and a wealth of personal experience. He surveys the drastic changes in the lives of children, but also the groundswell of grassroots advocacy and action that he believes will lead to the triumph of common sense and time-tested wisdom.

Their Name Is Today takes on technology, standardized testing, overstimulation, academic pressure, marketing to children, over-diagnosis and much more, calling on everyone who loves children to combat these threats to childhood and find creative ways to help children flourish. Every parent, teacher, and childcare provider has the power to make a difference, by giving children time to play, access to nature, and personal attention, and most of all, by defending their right to remain children. This book is also available in English. (173 pp.)

No pierdas el ánimo —¡puedes salvarlo! Nos lo asegura el autor de este libro, padre de ocho hijos y numerosos nietos. Los consejos de Arnold son prácticos antes que teóricos. Aborda temas educativos de actualidad, a saber, el uso de drogas como el Ritalín®, las pruebas estandarizadas, los niños «difíciles», el espíritu competitivo y la importancia del juego infantil. Este libro es para ti, madre, padre o maestro, y todos ­aquellos preocupados por la suerte de los niños. No quiere abrumarte con nuevos consejos sino orientarte de acuerdo con tu sabiduría innata.(173 pp.)
