So when I bought her book, I didn't read it.
Then I read a little bit, just maybe a quarter of it, and I can say that after just that much we started to see a fundamental positive shifts in our family dynamic. The focus on _how_ to use screens is forward thinking and practical. We put some of her suggested systems into play and (after maybe one tantrum) everyone seemed to adjust to a new, more balanced, sustainable reality.
We had started to see screens dominate and _separate_ our family. I won't say we're perfect, but since reading The Art of Screen Time, we see a LOT less tantrum behavior, and we see more interaction with our family, more helpfulness and cooperation, and frankly more fun for everyone when screens are being used.
I would recommend this book to any parent of any child. This is required reading, especially if you're the kind of parent that wants to help your kids flourish in our screen-rich world.
