The Art of Screen Time: How Your Family Can Balance Digital Media and Real Life by Anya Kamenetz

"Blending scholarly evidence and the experiences of numerous families, The Art of Screen Time is a well-researched and reassuring guide to raising kids in a world where technology is everywhere." -danah boyd, author of It's Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens
Finally there's a no-nonsense, don't-panic, evidence-based guide to one of the biggest challenges facing parents today: managing a world where screens are everywhere we look.
With this book, Anya Kamenetz--a journalist, an award-winning expert on both education and technology, and a mother of two young children--takes a refreshingly practical approach. She surveys both the experts and hundreds of fellow parents to find out how they really manage screensat home--for their children and themselves. Cutting through a thicket of inconclusive studies and overblown claims, she hones a simple message, a riff on Michael Pollan's well-known "food rules": Enjoy Screens. Not too much. Mostly with others.
Realistic, wise, and disarmingly candid, The Art of Screen Time shows us how to set aside our digital anxiety and create space for a happy, healthy family life.

Editorial Reviews

"Finally, a reasonable, well-researched argument to cut through all the hype, fear and hysteria around screens, kids, families, and our most precious and limited resources: our time and what we pay attention to. Screens are here to stay.
Anya Kamenetz provides a welcome, science-based guide for all of us to learn how to use them wisely."—Brigid Schulte, award-winning journalist and author of the New York Times bestseller Overwhelmed: Work, Love & Play when No One has the Time, and director of The Better Life Lab at New America

"A thoughtful,
evidence-based guide to technology that reads like having a conversation with a good friend-who also happens to be incredibly smart, honest, and witty....
Refreshingly, Kamenetz is a realist and does not condemn technology in the home.... [she] sheds a critical, yet supportive light on our relationship with technology...a must-read for any parent."—Booklist
