Summary According to the latest research, the average 13-year-old spends 8 hours per day, seven days a week, glued to a screen. Yes, this is problematic but to every problem there is a solution. Kersting explores the device-dependent world our children live in and how it is affecting their mental and emotional wellbeing. Research show that too much time in the cyber world is re-wiring kid's brains, affecting their ability to flourish in the real world as anxiety, depression, and attention issues soar. Simple strategies to help reduce screen-time as well as a host of meditative and mindfulness techniques to help our children reclaim their brains, and their lives, are provided.
