Description

Has Technology Taken Over Your Home?

In this digital age, children spend more time interacting with screens and less time playing outside, reading a book, or interacting with family. Though technology has its benefits, it also has its harms.

In Screen Kids Gary Chapman and Arlene Pellicane will empower you with the tools you need to make positive changes. Through stories, science, and wisdom, you’ll discover how to take back your home from an overdependence on screens. Plus, you’ll learn to teach the five A+ skills that every child needs to master: affection, appreciation, anger management, apology, and attention. Learn how to:

¿ Protect and nurture your child’s growing brain
¿ Establish simple boundaries that make a huge difference
¿ Recognize the warning signs of gaming too much
¿ Raise a child who won’t gauge success through social media
¿ Teach your child to be safe online

This newly revised edition features the latest research and interactive assessments, so you can best confront the issues technology create in your home. Now is the time to equip your child with a healthy relationship with screens and an even healthier relationship with others.

    A must read for anyone involved with children!!! Our current involvement with screen time is having a negative impact on us all, but especially the next generation. This book explains why is it is so important to take back our ability to relate to one another without the internet!
