Reinventing childhood

It is only as adults that we are able to recognize all the factors that made us into who we are today.

American children have less independence and autonomy today.

A childhood privilege was spending regular time with parents and access to meaningful interactions with other family members, especially grandparents.

45% of teens say they are online on a "near-constant" basis. Three years ago, 24% of teens went online "almost constantly."

Many people feel that time for reading was a major privilege of their childhood, where they had access to thousands of books from libraries, bookstores, or books passed along.

The most valued childhood experiences of people who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s are things that the current generation of kids are far less likely to know.
