An easy-to-follow guide that will help parents understand recreational screen media use at home.

Recreational screen media use is quickly replacing family time, by no fault of parents. They are doing the best they can based on the information available to them, which claims nothing can be done to stop their children's screen dependence.

Parents seeking change need a new framework for action. Breaking the Trance does not blame parents nor vilifies technology, but it does give parents clear and effective strategies to implement immediately. The results will restore a sense of care and connection within the family.

Screen dependence is real and destructive to developing personalities and brains. With wit, grace, and startling science, George and Cynthia bring you the facts you need to know, along with--most importantly--practical solutions for every parent.

The authors' balance real-life case stories, research, and common sense about how to tackle the monster that has crept into every family and relationship--that tantalizing screen--and provide explanations and simple tools that are both encouraging and empowering to move from identification to action. In addition, there is enough information and guidance in this book to help schools work effectively in tandem with the families they serve to help young people (and their parents) find specific ways to connect, grow stronger, and develop the skills necessary to lead fulfilling, meaningful lives. --Jackie Booth, PhD, Parent, grandparent, and lifelong educator Take heart, parents!
