Connecting With Kids in a Wireless World: A Conversation with Kathy Koch


The Book

screensandteensScreen are taking over our lives (hey, you’re reading this, aren’t you?). From smartphones to computers to tablets to TVs, it seems like everything we do in life involving looking at a screen. This has implications for us in the real world. Family conversation gives way to iPhone games at dinner. Playing outside with friends migrates indoors to online gaming. Reading gives way to television.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with these different kinds of technology, it’s simply our obsession with it that causes the problem. So how do we cure ourselves? In Screens and Teens: Connection with Our Kids in a Wireless World, Dr. Kathy Koch leaves readers with a strategy for success.
