Adult Child of HippiesBook - 2010
Do you have a name such as Willow, River, Oak, or Sunshine? Have you ever lived in a commune, or done yoga naked with your family? If yes, then you are an Adult Child of Hippies (ACOH). ACOHs grew up in extreme conditions: eating sprouts, and lugging herbal tea to school in their Thermoses (if they were fortunate enough to make it to school). ACOHs were born and brought up mostly in the 70s and 80s. As their parents reveled in the counterculture, their children struggled with basic hygiene, not to mention broader social acceptance. Until now, this group has not been represented in the media. Content with leaving the past in the past, ACOHs have successfully blended into the mainstream; but the memories and photos persist. Finally, Willow Yamauchi has brought her generational subculture into the light. We no longer need to feel alone or ashamed of our bizarre heritage. Take the test, see the pictures, and stand up tall Say it: I am an Adult Child of Hippies...and I am proud.
