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.

Read this book!!!!

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!

Could have been better

I grabbed this off Audiable to listen to in the car. I finished it with two errand trips around Savannah. I have Degrees in Child Development and Education, and like to get these books every once in a while to “sharpen my skills.” This was worse than reading a textbook. The narrator reminded me of Ben Stein’s monotone voice in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Also, it was weird to hear him read from a female’s letter; imagine Stein saying “I, Aubrey…..”

There were a lot of statistics read and over-informing the readers of the problem. We know kids are too attached to their screens, that’s why we chose this book, we are hoping to get usable advice; which, was nowhere in this book. Don’t get me wrong, advice was given, but it was obviously from someone that does not live with kids.

I have read so many helpful books, and felt this one could have been better. For this reason, I rate Growing Up Social with 2 stars....Beth
