About this item

Screen media use (accessing digital content on tablets, cell phones, etc.) is quickly replacing traditional family time, and there is an accepted reality that nothing can be done. With few resources available, many parents are driven to the challenge of looking for a new framework to make the best decisions for their families.

Written as an easy-to-follow guide for parents who want to understand recreational screen media use in their homes,Breaking the Trance does not blame parents, nor vilifies technology as a whole, but rather provides easy and effective strategies to implement immediately. Using clinical examples and specific guidelines, the authors equip parents with tools for measuring the presence of an issue with screen media use toward getting screen-dependency under control. Ultimately, parents will be able to establish a screen control plan based on their own family's values that works and can be enforced.
