Choralosophy Book Club is back with a discussion of the book I am currently reading. “The Anxious Generation” by Jonathan Haidt (author of “The Coddling of the American Mind” and “The Righteous Mind”) which is #1 on NY Times Best Seller List

This book has powerful insights and implications for teachers in addition to parents. I, of course, have my own thoughts related to how the advent of “the phone based childhood” as Dr. Haidt calls it, has impacted my own children. But in this episode, I will try to keep the focus on how this book can help teachers truly “meet students where they are.”

I see a lot of posts from colleagues who are very hard on themselves for what seems to be declining student motivation, low levels of participation and other negative and noticeable trends. Of course, the teacher does hold a power to motivate for good or ill, but we can’t do it for them. I highly recommend this episode as an introduction to this cutting edge research and analysis. There are skeptics of course, which we will discuss as well.

From the summary of the book: After more than a decade of stability or improvement, the mental health of adolescents plunged in the early 2010s. Rates of depression, anxiety, self-harm, and suicide rose sharply, more than doubling on many measures. Why?
In The Anxious Generation, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt lays out the facts about the epidemic of teen mental illness that hit many countries at the same time. He then investigates the nature of childhood, including why children need play and independent exploration to mature into competent, thriving adults. Haidt shows how the “play-based childhood” began to decline in the 1980s, and how it was finally wiped out by the arrival of the “phone-based childhood” in the early 2010s. He presents more than a dozen mechanisms by which this “great rewiring of childhood” has interfered with children’s social and neurological development, covering everything from sleep deprivation to attention fragmentation, addiction, loneliness, social contagion, social comparison, and perfectionism. He explains why social media damages girls more than boys and why boys have been withdrawing from the real world into the virtual world, with disastrous consequences for themselves, their families, and their societies.
