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 screens at 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.

Thank you for such a balanced and interesting book. Well researched, practical, positive and well narrated.
I’m a child psychiarist and happy to have a book to recommend to parents. I learned a lot and have practical ideas for how to better engage with my children and media.

Finally! Some rational thinking about screentime
Screens aren't going away, so well-reasoned, well-researched works about how to to live with them healthily (like this one) are essential. Also, Anya, with her background in radio, does a fantastic job of keeping this lively and engaging. A must-listen for any parent!
