“The Big Disconnect:  Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age” by Catherine Steiner-Adair, EdD


As the author notes, the digital world is here to stay.  Technology has many benefits, but what have we lost in the process?  Parents feel disconnected from their kids, kids feel disconnected from their peers (despite an abundance of “communication”), and loneliness is epidemic.  Steiner-Adair draws upon both research and her own work to offer insights and advice that can help parents use technology in beneficial ways without having it dominate their lives (and set poor examples for their kids in the process).  She also offers guidance on how to best protect children who lack the “filters” and maturity to know when they are putting themselves at risk.  Above all, she inspires her readers to gain the ability to put technology aside at times, and connect deeply with one another.
