Imagine you're at an Ivy League school with one of their best professors. The lecturer is crisp, to the point and complete. This is what Dr Martin Kutscher has done with Digital Kids. In a crisp, easy way he teaches us the ins and outs of cyberspace, but more importantly, we learn how to raise well-adjusted kids in the Digital Age. Digital Kids is a true contribution and a must for both professionals and parents.

By emphasizing social transactions and the social rules of digital society, as well as the safe use of digital media, this book will help to create boundaries and strengthen understanding of the digital world, without frightening the reader about the use and culture of social media and the internet in general. I strongly recommend this book for parents to encourage them to get involved with what their 'digital kids' are doing online.

Today's children quickly gravitate to - and master - electronic devices. This leaves their parents both proud and fearful. What is the impact on social skills and brain development? The antidote to fear is knowledge, explains veteran pediatric neurologist Martin Kutscher. In this engagingly written book, he gently walks you through the issues and the ways you can create healthy balance in your child's life.

Eye-opening research that validates parents' concerns regarding the relationship their kids have with digital technology can be found in Digital Kids. Dr Kutscher's easy to understand explanations of many topics such as multi-tasking vs multi-switching, the effects of technology on reading comprehension, and the difficulty of switching from playing video games to starting homework, makes Digital Kids a great resource for parents and educators!
