This book is the first and only evidence-based approach I have seen that helps parents decide how to balance to use of technology with the reality of how a child’s brain develops. Technology is here to stay – but how do we make sure our kids still develop the important skill of deliberate, sustained attention? They need our help to learn to use technology effectively, rather than be victims of it. Thank goodness for Dr. Palladino’s real-life examples and tools for parents, based on the most cutting edge understanding of the brain that science has to offer, written in readable, engaging style. Her balanced approach gives me hope, and also gives me something solid to recommend to my patients. -OB/GYN physician in Chicago, IL
