Childhood 2.0 (2020)
Not Rated | 1h 28min | Documentary | 26 August 2020 (USA)
For the first time in history, mental illness and suicide have become one of the greatest threats to school-aged children in America. Many parents still view dangers as primarily physical and external and are missing the real danger: constant connectivity’s pervasive internal assault on mental health. This film is an exploration of the dramatic technological and cultural shift that children and parents have faced since the rise of social networks and mobile devices. Childhood 2.0 dives into the issues of addiction and withdrawal, anxiety and depression, online abuse and bullying, the pervasiveness of pornography, the culture of sexting and unforeseen consequences, the rise of online pedophilia and sexual predators, the loss of free play and autonomy and the rapid growth of suicide among children and teens.
This film is the first of its kind and an absolute must-watch for parents and caregivers everywhere. As a millennial, I thought I had a pretty good idea of what it means to be a kid growing up with technology. I was wrong. This documentary opened my eyes to what Gen Z really faces every single day and how much significance can be tied to a smartphone or Instagram account.
