Description

Cell phones, video games, and computers make our lives richer. Yet, they are also wreaking havoc on children and teens who are not able to use them in a healthy way, leading to problems at home, school, and in the community. Youth are escaping into an electronic world and missing valuable opportunities to develop skills required for successful relationships and adult careers.

Children and teens with a mental health diagnosis such as autism, ADHD, anxiety or depression are particularly vulnerable to Electronic Addiction, but it can negatively impact any young person. The online world is seductive and often easier to navigate for children who are shy, introverted, or bullied.

If you are concerned about your child's use of electronics, this book will show you:

  • Why electronics are so addicting
  • How to determine if your child has a problem with electronics
  • Crucial social skills that can't be developed online and ways you can foster them
  • Why kids with special needs are especially vulnerable
  • Proven strategies for prevention and intervention of electronic addiction for children from preschool through college
