This illuminating investigation takes a fresh look at the role of media in children's lives. An overview of the formidable challenges parents face and creative ways to overcome them are included, as are strategies for turning a home environment from "high-tech" to "high-touch." Moving beyond demonizing the media, this work, like none before it, articulates the difficulties of parenting in our depersonalized society. It offers hopeful alternatives for all parents wanting to protect children from, and teach children about, media's impact.

"Offers powerful strategies to help today's parents raise their children with greater literacy, emotional intelligence, and academic success, building healthier, happier families." --Dr. Diane Dreher, associate dean of arts and sciences, Santa Clara University "DeGaetanto's book helps parents understand the latest research on media use, its implications for child development, and what they can do about it." --Suite101.com
