In this deeply inspiring tribute to children, speaker and pastor Johann Christoph Arnold brings together the opinions of parents, education experts, and famed figures from various fields, as well as his own experiences, to underline his point: successful children make for a successful society, and treating each child with care and respect is our duty as adults. Particularly moving are Arnold's thoughts on the pressure that children face to be "normal." He deeply opposes diagnoses of learning disorders and prescriptions of medication for kids whose personalities are ill-suited to standardized learning methods (though he is respectful when discussing cases where medication is needed). Arnold's basic message is clear, and well worth heeding: a deep reverence for children will make the world a better place.

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. Arnold 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.
