In this culture of instant gratification and potential excess, parenting has become a bigger challenge than ever.

About the Author-

He frequently presents seminars and workshops for mental health professionals, parents, and educators on issues such as parenting, child development, and communication.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Psychologist Michael Osit provides a fascinating look at how technology like cell phones and computers is altering the way children are growing up in today's society. His discussion includes his own personal experiences with children and case studies on ways in which children have been deeply affected by the world in which we live. Narrating in a sympathetic tone that will surely appeal to parents, Dan John Miller brings Osit's extensive research to life in a credible and straightforward manner. The material itself is compelling, and, with more and more children losing themselves in the digital world, it seems more pertinent than ever. A must-listen for parents. L.B.
