Renowned clinical psychologist Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair explains that families are in crisis around this issue, and even more so than they realize. Her latest book, The Big Disconnect identifies the current reality of our lives, family and relationships as we are focused on the glow of the screen. This excellent read reminds us that it is time to look with fresh eyes and an open mind at the disconnection we are experiencing from our extreme device dependence. It's never too late to put down the iPad and come to the dinner table.
Reading this book (or listening to the Audible version of the book) will help raise your awareness to the digital issues your children face today. Having this knowledge will help your children to be even more accountable to their online boundaries. Books can be ordered on Amazon (available for your Kindle and Audible version as well) or found at bookstores throughout Dubai.
