THE BIG DISCONNECT Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age

by | Read by Kirsten Potter

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

With her beautiful tone and savvy interpretations, Kirsten Potter shows she was a superb choice to read this parenting advice. The author believes that children’s involvement with social media, screen games, and the Internet exposes them to adult life too soon and prevents their emotional engagement with their families. In practical, silky language Steiner-Adair explains that today’s electronic connections are more spellbinding than table games, phone calls, or TV. Handheld screens and earbuds put kids into a trance and don’t teach them the trust, empathy, optimism, and resilience that only family members can offer. As she delivers the author’s ample evidence and remedies for these threats to healthy development, Potter’s appealing voice strikes the perfect level of urgency without lapsing into drama or stealing attention from this compelling information.
