As it turns out, the real problem is the digital age we live in is changing the way the children look at things. Raising our children was easier as there was never this much technology to deal with. There was plenty, but we tried to help them to stay grounded, and did not give into their wanting to get all the new devices they wanted. No a days it is not possible to keep all this from them as the world as a whole expects them to know how to use all this stuff before starting school.
The book has given us many things to help though, and I would recommend it to anyone that needs that little extra help in their lives when dealing with the youngsters these days.
could make great use of it and their son would benefit greatly from it.
