About the Book

《港孩: 父母教師的噩夢》

「港孩」,指今時今日香港社會的孩子。他們生於九十年代中後至二千年初,一個物質相對富裕、資訊爆炸的時代。年齡,由幾歲到十幾歲不等,都是高小至初中的學生。

Born between the mid 90s and early 2000s, 港孩 ("Kong Hai" or "Kong Kids") are epitome of a mix of a material culture in the home environment and the information explosion in the global environment.
