WHO'S RAISING THE KIDS? Big Tech, Big Business, and the Lives of Children

by | Read by Susan Linn

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

A psychologist who's spent her career protecting children from commercial marketing explains why parents should be vigilant about today's digital toys and devices, which she says inhibit creative play and initiative. Author Susan Linn's fragile-sounding timbre is not effective for this production. But her otherwise likable performance is easy to understand and conveys persuasive earnestness about her message. She says children's learning styles, values, and relationships are at stake in the battle against today's digital toys, which she repeatedly says are mainly designed to be addictive, disposable, and profitable. Her recommendations aim to help parents protect their children from the insidious power of these devices and show them more broadly how to be vigilant about what they allow into their children's lives.
