BAD THERAPY: WHY THE KIDS AREN’T GROWING UP

Here’s how this week’s arts and culture column begins:

Bad Therapy: Why the Kids Aren’t Growing Up” (Penguin Random House, $30) has become an instant best-seller.

Author Abigail Shrier, an LA-based investigative journalist, also wrote “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters” (Regnery, $26). Her new book promises to be equally controversial.

Basically, says Shrier, the kids aren’t growing up because — with urgent encouragement from the pharmaceutical and mental health industries — they’ve been hovered over, catered to, coddled, protected, consulted as to their preferences, accommodated to within an inch of their lives, shielded from all risk, and medicated to the gills since practically the moment they exited the womb.

  1. Shrier writes the truth in “Irreversable Damage.” It took me weeks to find the book through a systemwide search of our public library because the powers that be took the book off the shelves. They thought it would upset the LGBTQ+ community. I’m sure I’ll run into the same problem with the new book. I’ve decided to buy both books and save myself some irritation. Besides, I want them on my bookshelf for reference. Thanks for this article.

      Oh yeah, it was crazy how they tried to censor Irreversible Damage–I think amazon refused to sell it for a time. I wrote on that, too: https://www.heather-king.com/2021/08/20/abigail-shrier-on-teen-transgenderism/. Couldn’t agree with her more, on both subjects!
