What's Happening to America's Children?

Mary Eberstadt discusses her new book, "Home Alone America"



Why are there so many troubled kids these days, diagnosed with learning disabilities or behavioral problems? Why is child obesity out of control? Why are teenagers contracting herpes and other sexually transmitted diseases at unprecedented rates? What is really at the core of today's juvenile popular culture, especially its much-criticized music?

Hoover Institution research fellow Mary Eberstadt explored the answers provided in her controversial new book Home Alone America: The Hidden Toll of Day Care, Behavioral Drugs, and Other Parent Substitutes.



In addition, Patrick Fagan of the Heritage Foundation and EPPC Fellow Christine Rosen offered their commentary and insights on Ms. Eberstadt's book and her presentation.
