Product Description

The awesome potential of the human brain can only be tapped by providing the best possible learning environment at the earliest possible age. Scientific research has shown that television damages the full neural development of children’s brains, crippling their capacity for symbol and metaphor. Other factors also contribute to antisocial behavior later in life, putting the future of even the most affluent societies at serious risk. “We forget that quality of life, to a child,” says Pearce, “has nothing to do with standard of living.” He envisions a society in which our brains and spirits can develop to their highest potential. Whether or not you are a parent, this is highly compelling information relating to our future quality of life and evolution.
