Michael  Winterhoff - The Rediscovery of Childhood


Give children back their childhood

The world has changed, but the needs of our children have not. Based on the example of the daily life of Alexander, born in 1995, and Luis, born in 2016, Michael Winterhoff demonstrates how our children have almost unnoticed lost their childhood and as a result changed tremendously – and not always for the good. Parents and teachers see it every day, with all that entails – its outgrowths, its anxieties, its uncertainties.

Children need a childhood deserving the name. Winterhoff explains what that means. His astute analysis points to ways how parents can in a digital world create those safe havens that are indispensable for personality development. With his well-founded criticism of the education system, Winterhoff echoes the thoughts of teachers and educators and urges them not to stray from the ideal of togetherness with the focus on relationships.

“With his new book, the child psychologist Michael Winterhoff delivers an alarming diagnosis.”
