"In this digital age, children are spending more and more time interacting with a screen rather than a parent. Technology has the potential to add value to our families, but it can also erode a sense of togetherness and hinder a child's emotional growth. In Growing Up Social: Raising Relational Kids in a Screen-Driven World, you'll learn how to take back your home from an over-dependence on screens. Discover the five A+ skills needed to give your child the relational edge in a screen-driven world: affection, appreciation, anger management, apology, and attention. Today's screens aren't just in our living rooms; they are in our pockets. Now is the time to equip your child to live with screen time, not for screen time. Constant entertainment is not the goal of childhood. No phone, tablet, or gaming device can teach your child how to have healthy relationships; only you can. Growing Up Social will help you: Equip your child to be relational rich in a digital world Replace mindless screen time with meaningful family time Establish simple boundaries that make a huge difference Read what's working for the screen savvy family down the street Prepare your child to succeed down the road in relationships and life Learn healthy ways to occupy your child while you get things done "--

Thought provoking book on the dangers and benefits of screen time for babies, kids and teens and how it can make an impact on them as adults.

This book is the equivalent to online "Clickbait". No actual science. A bunch of anecdotes with no actual citations as to where the information comes from. In one instance, the author cited "" as the source. There are better books on the subject.

This book makes all the brain research easy to read and digest. It was very interesting to learn how screens are affecting all of us. There is also a great 5 step apology that I have been teaching my kids. Wonderful!

"...five languages of apology:
Expressing Regret: "I am sorry."
Accepting Responsibility: "I was wrong."
Making Restitution: "What can I do to make it right?"
Genuinely Repenting: "I'll try not to do that again."
Requesting Forgiveness: "Will you please forgive me?""
