5.0 out of 5 stars So timely! A must-read for anyone who uses a screen!
By Christen Fox on October 6, 2020
Screen Kids: 5 Skills Every Child Needs in a Tech-Driven World by Gary Chapman and Arlene Pellicane is a resource that can assist all people in safely navigating the technological world we live in. It is possible to weave technology into your life without having it dictate your life.

Screen Kids may be marketed as a parenting tool but frankly I believe it contains information that is suitable, adaptable and applicable for any human being who is exposed to some form of technology.

Chapman and Pellicane have come together, yet again, as a power-team of writers, parents, and researchers who are also very relatable and practical in their teaching and approach. These authors have collaborated on several other projects. They noticed a lot has changed in the world, specifically in the tech world, since the 2014 release of their book, Growing Up Social. Based on significant research over the last five years, Chapman and Pellicane updated and rebranded Growing Up Social into Screen Kids in hopes to empower families to take back their homes from an overdependence on screens.

Screen Kids is strategically divided into three parts:
1.) Kids on Tech: This section is heavily rooted in research and statistics while examining behavior resulting from tech-use
2.) The A+ Social Skills: This section is the “work” portion of the book that motivates individuals to take action against the negative effects of technology
3.) Restart Your Home: This section ties the previous sections together and encourages personal assessment and application

Screen Kids will encourage you to evaluate personal technology use along with examining how technology is affecting those you love. The A+ Social Skills section is the antidote against technology dependence pr addiction and will teach the reader how to develop the traits of affection, appreciation, anger management, apology, and attention.

This book is raw and real and exposes the gritty truth most people gloss over – technology is taking over our lives and its addictiveness is robbing children of their youth while also stealing precious time, energy and focus/attention away from anyone who uses a screen. We spend so much life behind a screen but screens can never replace authentic emotions or relationships. They can, however, remove empathy and replace it with indifference and loneliness (not to mention other damaging side effects).

Likewise, Screen Kids is interactive by including assessments, challenges, questions, and quizzes that will inspire you to apply what you learn to your daily life. There is a Q&A at the end of the book that is valuable as well – addresses some commonly asked questions targeting struggles you may encounter while implementing the skills taught throughout this book.

One thing I found very refreshing was the constant reminder that what is best isn’t always easy. In fact, several times in this book the authors tell it like it is and recognize it may not be what you want to hear. I really respected their boldness and appreciated their love for the reader’s wellbeing over their “like” for applause, praise or a pat on the back. The truth spoken in love is the only way our souls can receive the nourishment needed to thrive in this world.

There is no doubt that Screen Kids will equip you to take back your home from an overdependence on technology, but you must take the initiative.
