I found the first section about what happens to children when they have too much screen time very interesting. The later section about what to do about it I found a bit slow and obvious.
If you are a parent struggling with children and screens this is the book for you. I found the information and background very interesting and the strategies provided very useful. This book also made me look at my own habits which isn't a bad thing
