Description:

More and more of children’s attitudes, values, interests, and behavior run the risk of being controlled by their experiences with the popular media culture and screens instead of being actively created by children themselves. That is, childhood is becoming increasingly remote controlled. Learn how to counteract the potentially harmful impact media can have on both the process and content of children’s development and learning, and how to help families make informed decisions about the screen media in children’s lives. 

Learn more about the book. 

"This book speaks to all who are concerned about the impact of media and screen exposure on young minds, bodies, and hearts. It is also an urgent call to action. If you are concerned about the media children see and hear, you must read this book!"
