Summary
  • "Tech Generation: Raising Balanced Kids in a Hyper-Connected World guides parents in teaching their children how to reap the benefits of living in a digital world while also preventing its negative effects. Mike Brooks and Jon Lasser, psychologists with extensive experience working with kids, parents, and teachers, combine cutting-edge research and expertise to create an engaging and helpful guide that emphasizes the importance of the parent-child relationship"--
  • Threats of cyberbullying, video game violence, pornography, and sexting may seem inescapable. But for some, the tendency to overuse screens is interfering with the ability to meet basic needs.: sleep, physical activity, and perhaps most importantly, in-person relationships. Brooks and Lasser guide parents in teaching their children how to reap the benefits of living in a digital world while also preventing its negative effects. They neither idealize nor demonize the digital, but instead provide strategies for preventing technology from becoming problematic in the first place. -- adapted from jacket
