As a practicing child psychiatrist and mother of three, Jodi Gold has a unique understanding of both the mind-boggling benefits and the serious downsides of technology. Dr. Gold weaves together scientific knowledge and everyday practical advice to help you foster your child's healthy relationship to technology, from birth to the teen years. You'll learn:
  • How much screen time is too much at different ages.
  • What your kids and teens are actually doing in all those hours online.
  • How technology affects social, emotional, and cognitive development.
  • Which apps and games build smarts and let creativity shine.
  • How your own media habits influence your children.
  • What you need to know about privacy concerns, cyberbullying, and other dangers.
  • Ways to set limits that the whole family can live with.
