Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite The Game Is Playing Your Kid: How to Unplug and Reconnect in the Digital Age by Dr. Joe Dilley confronts a perennial problem: how to keep children away from playing recreational electronic games while the parents want them to study and get better grades. This has now reached alarming proportions, the proliferation of modern technology making it easy to go wayward. Dr Joe examines this from every angle, starting with the family. He dwells on the elements of a child’s learning, lists alternatives that can fill the void, and explains how to and how not to introduce restrictions to a child. The Game Is Playing Your Kid by Dr. Joe Dilley is a guide for happy parenting. Rather than looking at the absolute unsuitability of all the electronic gadgets children enjoy, Dr Joe has taken efforts to identify positive ways of connecting children and parents. With imaginative tips and concepts like Crafty Appeals, Triangle Defense, Chill Time, Kill Switch and scores of others, this book is poised to become an oft referred to guide in parenting. Many methods Dr Joe suggests in better parenting, like sequencing responsibility and privilege, have an air of originality. This is a very good book, a factual page turner, which held my attention from the very start till I reached the back cover.
