Managing Your Family's High-Tech Habits
(From Video-Games to the Dark Side of the Web)
Arnie Cole, Pam Ovwigho
Most families are riding the wave of high-tech gadgets, rarely considering its negative consequences: increased stress, “connected isolation,” loneliness, bad habits and behaviors, and dangerous addictions. Managing Your Family's High-Tech Habits helps you sort through the promise and the pitfalls of virtual living, showing you how to navigate social media choices and set healthy boundaries. Various chapters address hot-button issues: why boys get hooked on video games; why our daughters practically “live” on their cell phones; what to do when families are caught in the dark side of the web.
