Growing Up Social

Does your child play Hide and Seek? Do they even know how?
When was the last time your child held a real in the hand book? Not on a Kindle or Nook or any electronic device? 

Do your children live with screen time
 or for screen time???

How did your child score?

In Growing Up Social, Gary Chapman and Arlene Pellicane will empower you with the necessary tools to help make positive changes. Through stories, wit, and wisdom you’ll discover how to take back your home from an overdependence on screens. Plus, you’ll learn to teach the five A+ skills that every healthy child needs to master: affection, appreciation, anger management, apology, and attention.
  • Equip your child to be relationally rich in a digital world
  • Replace mindless screen time with meaningful family time
  • Establish simple boundaries that make a huge difference
  • Discover what’s working for families that have become screen savvy
  • Learn healthy ways to occupy your child while you get things done
Now is the time to equip your child to live with screen time, not for screen time. No phone, tablet, or gaming device can teach your child how to have healthy relationships; only you can.

There have been times I thought my kids were going to crawl through the gaming screens. That was when we started restricting their time. The first few days were the hardest on them. But it has been worth it. My kids do play, and fight, with each other. But they also ride bikes, play hide and seek and look at paper in hand books. 

I must say this book was a great read. I believe that if your a parent of a child from 2-17, you should read this book.
