Very accurate & up to date content

Very very good audio book & hit the nail on the head with the analysis of digital media and effects it has on today’s children (and teens).
Tough road ahead weaning our children of this crazy train, but I’m confident that what I have heard from this book
Will give all of my family (including me)
Healthy guidelines to an somewhat unknown problem.

Interesting

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.

Definitely one for parents of children and teens alike

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

Useful techniques to help your family.

Really helped me realise what screen does to your brain and your children's.
It gave me the tools and confidence to follow my instincts about limiting screentime and spending more quality time with the kids.
