Jonathan McKee has given parents an excellent resource in his newest book, 52 Ways to Connect with Your Smartphone Obsessed Kid. With insight from his study of youth culture and trends and his experience working with teens, McKee is well-prepared to share the advice he has compiled in this book. Citing research studies and using his own personal family experiences, he presents, as the book title suggests, 52 ideas for parents to use or springboard from to help their kids learn to communicate face to face. Easy to read, sprinkled with humor, these pearls of wisdom for engaging kids and helping them disconnect from technology are proactive, practical and seemingly easy to put into use. The chapters are short and succinct and at the end have several questions to ponder. The author reminds parents to notice and affirm their kids, to ask questions, to give guardrails and not shackles. Parents are encouraged to practice both bonding and boundaries. "If all we ever do is bark out boundaries, we'll hinder the opportunities to bond." (152) Included at the end of the book is a list of useful questions for parents to utilize as they begin to connect with their kids with the many helpful tips McKee has shared. A great resource for parents who want to build strong relationships with their children. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

Very Informative

This book really opened my eyes to ways to deal with the 'Smartphone obsessed World'. I am the grandmother of several children and so far they are not old enough to be too obsessed with this, but I do see it on the horizon with one of them. I intend to pass this book on to someone who could really use it 'here and now'. I have absorbed this information and now I am armed with ways to help my children later on when they have to deal with this problem...with their own kids. If you are dealing with this now, please get this book and learn some very positive ways to deal with it all. I was given a copy of this book by Barbour Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
