Childline; it has meant more children are being heard of the abuse towards them, HOWEVER could it show now how children are often over protected as they are seen as weak and any adult is a predator.

Postmodernist view of the toxic childhood, where the increasing globalisation, the media/tv, junk food has an affect on childrens physical and mental health.

Childhood EXISTS, because of research on the unsupervised games children play means children still do seperate activities to adults.

Childhood is CHANIGING, where society is more unstable and couples are not focusing on their relationship, childhood becomes more difficult.

Postman
Childhood is DISAPPEARING, because of tv, children see more then they should and this has an effect on the activities that children amy become involved in.There is a wider blur between adults and children: less of an information hierarchy.

Parents are too emotionally dependant on their children and use them as a source for their own happiness. therfore decisions are affected when it comes to children.
