Author is a 29 year-old father of two. Very few books about kids, parenting, childhood are written from this perspective.
Daniel Donahoo is getting lots of media coverage around these issues, particularly because of his role as convenor of Young Parent Forums.
This title brings together lots of debates about children and tv, childhood obesity, childcare, 'helicopter parenting' etc in one place.
It has a positive and inspirational message celebrating parenthood and children, rather than being all about finger-pointing, guilt and blame.
Title will be supported by full national media campaign, print, radio, TV, author events.
Obsessed with our own youth and wanting perfect, genius children who live in a world of designer clothes and toys, ""Idolising Children"" says it's time for us to find new ways of parenting and a new kind of childhood.
We need to remove the guilt that comes with trying to be perfect parents.
In his eye-opening book, Daniel Donahoo asks us to respect children and allow them to experience childhood with all its ups and downs.
