Description - The New Childhood: Raising kids to thrive in a digitally connected world by Jordan Shapiro

IT'S TIME FOR A NEW APPROACH TO SCREEN TIME.

Jordan Shapiro believes we need to rethink parental attitudes to technology. There's a damaging orthodoxy that presents screen-time as the ultimate modern parenting evil and the only acceptable response to it is restriction. Shapiro, psychologist, educational pioneer and father of two, draws on cutting-edge research in education, philosophy, neuroscience and psychology to show we've let fear and nostalgia stand in the way of our children's best interests.

In his optimistic, inspiring and practical guide to the new, digital frontier of childhood, he reframes gaming, social media and smartphones to offer fresh, evidence-based advice on how to take a more progressive approach.

*Winner of the Spirituality & Practice Book Award as one of the 50 Best Spiritual Books of 2018.*
