Format: Paperback
"Kids, Parents, and technology: An Instruction Manual for Young Families" discusses the use of media by children and families. The increase in media use by youth has important implications for our society as well as for families. Some types of media use have been associated with increased aggression, for example. The book provides practical methods of protecting children and turning their computer and other media use into growth experiences. Without some guidelines, youth's computer and video media use can produce problems in the realms of social interaction, character, and development. Children are learning to interact through text messages and computers. The potential impact on youth's social and personal skills is high and of concern. The book reviews important developmental tasks, the impact of media use, and methods for parents (and then for clinicians) to assist children through good family and child media habits. This is an important book for parents, clinicians, and anyone else who works with children to read.
