Raising Generation Tech by Dr. Jim Taylor offers practical parenting advice on how to prepare children for the ever-increasing presence media play in our lives. Dr. Taylor, a parenting and technology expert, lays out the risks and benefits of media immersion and shows a feasible way in which media, through the right means, can be used in a healthy way for social and intellectual growth.
Discussion and guidance on such relevant topics as iPhone overuse, Facebook depression, and Internet addiction give parents a strategy to follow for steering clear of media saturation. Dr. Taylor addresses parents who are understandably fearful of popular and media technology overexposure and gives tips to help avoid the “plugged in” phenomenon of the new generation. Emphasizing a moderation approach to exposing children to media, this book covers prominent media issues parents face and introduces a mindset for balancing media with beneficial values and outside activities.
