Summary

The book that every parent needs. Written by the expert child psychologist Dr Elizabeth Kilbey, from Channel 4's The Secret Life of 4, 5 and 6 Year Olds.

'Children who get too much screen time are at risk of anxiety disorders.' (BBC News)

This is the book that every parent with a child under the age of 11 (in the latency stage of brain development) needs in order to navigate the tricky pathway of how much screen time to allow on a daily basis. Play has gone from a physical, creative experience using toys and imagination to something that now involves sitting down alone for hours at a time. Parents are dealing with children who don't listen to them, who are unable to concentrate for very long, who refuse to do homework and who constantly battle against them for more screen time.

In this book Dr Elizabeth Kilbey will offer tangible, practical advice about how to 'unplug' your child from their device so their online time doesn't become all-consuming and how we, as parents, can plug in to connect with our children.

Touching so many striking points!

A book every parent should listen to. I found it very eye opening and aprreciated the most the recommendations on how to avoid or resolve issues connected to screen time not only from the child’s point of view but more importantly from the parent’s one. Well recorded as well!

Essential listening

If you are concerned about yours or your children’s use of technology/phones/tablets, this is well worth a listen. And if you’re not concerned, you probably need to listen to this.
