Summary, etc.:
"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"-- Provided by publisher.
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
