These are all real headlines screaming about the terrible stuff that's out there . . . stuff that's supposed to be BAD FOR YOU. But, honestly--is it?!

Bad for You asks this question and many more--and not just about the things that modern parents fear like violent video games, social media, and dirty hands. Stuff in this book goes back centuries--all the way to Plato (yeah, that one) and his worries over the new "technology" of his time: the written word! Kevin C. Pyle and Scott Cunningham cleverly expose the long-standing CAMPAIGN AGAINST FUN for what it really is: a bunch of anxious adults grasping at straws, ignoring scientific data, and blindlyyearning for the good old days that never were. Bad for You presents the facts, figures, and a whole lot more--in eye-grabbing graphics--to debunk these myths and give kids the power to prove there's nothing wrong with having fun . . . or with being young.
