Kids are now exposed to their first screens at four months old, compared to four years old in the 1970s. Finally there's a no-nonsense, don't-panic, evidence-based guide to one of the biggest challenges facing parents today: mediating our kids' use of media, when media is like the air we breathe.
With this book, Anya Kamenetz—a journalist, award-winning expert on both education and technology, and a mother—takes a refreshingly practical approach. She surveys both the experts and hundreds of fellow parents to find out what they really do at home. She hones a simple message, a riff on Michael Pollan's well-known "Food Rules": Enjoy Screens. Not too much. Mostly with others.
