Overview

A practical guide to building your child's bond with family and fostering school success amid the allure of digital screens

Kids' obsessive use of video games, social media, and texting is eclipsing their connections with family and school-the two most important contributors to their well-being. The result: a generation of kids who suffer from soaring rates of emotional and academic problems, with many falling prey to an epidemic of video game and internet addictions.

In Wired Child, learn why a bevy of social media friends won't keep teens from feeling empty inside and turning to cutting for relief. See how our kids have become smartphone experts who struggle in reading, math, and the other educational basics that colleges consider in deciding admissions. And discover how many "child-friendly" technologies are depriving kids of joy in the real world, putting them at risk for device addictions.

Wired Child gives you the confidence and skills you need to safely navigate your children through a rapidly shifting media landscape. Dr. Freed offers concrete parenting strategies that will help you create the strong family kids need and encourage their school success. You'll also learn how to protect kids from destructive tech addictions, and instead guide them to use technology productively as a positive force for their future.
