“Families in the Digital Age”, says Steve Biddulph, “is one of the most-needed and grab-you-by-the throat convincing books around today, and it says things no other writer is saying about social media—smartphones, selfies, Instagram, the whole digital box and dice.
“[Toni Hassan] has answers, almost from the first chapter, and all the research is there, chewed and chunked for you. She writes with a light touch so that it zips along, but it will last—you will get steel in your spine for drawing boundaries on your own use of social media, your awareness of its effects when you do use it, and a really clear idea of how to manage it, positively and adaptively, with your children …” —Steve Biddulph, author of Raising Boys and many other titles
