From Addictions expert.  Dr. Nicholas Kardaras, shows how technology has profoundly affected the brains of children―and not for the better.

This is a must read for any parent who wants to really be saavy and informed on what exactly is happening when their child uses technology.
"Tech companies are investing so much money in making video games addicting to children.  They hire the top neuroscientists and hire teenage beta testers to beta-test their new videos with.  If the teenage tester's blood pressure doesn't go to 180/140 within 2 minutes they go back and tweak the game to make it more arousing and exciting." he tells us in the Glow documentary.

Some say that glowing screens might even be good for kids―a form of interactive educational tool. We get it. Just about every public school in the country gives children laptops and desktops and expects them to devices at home as well.

Glow Kids shows us how even age-inappropriate screen tech, with all of its glowing ubiquity―has profoundly affected the brains of an entire generation.

We love that this book Glow Kids, also includes an opt-out letter and a "quiz" for parents in the back of the book.

A growing mountain of clinical research correlates screen tech with disorders like ADHD, addiction, anxiety, depression, increased aggression, and even psychosis. Most shocking of all, recent brain imaging studies conclusively show that excessive screen exposure can neurologically damage a young person’s developing brain in the same way that cocaine addiction can.

Kardaras dives into the sociological, psychological, cultural, and economic factors involved in the global tech epidemic with one major goal: to explore the effect all of our wonderful shiny new technology is having on kids.

so happy to know there is more and more evidence showing how detrimental the screens are for chil...

Parents!! Do not feel the need to cave in and do what everyone else seems to be doing. I didn't give my son his own phone or laptop until after 8th grade when he went to a boarding school for 9th. It can be done....you might think it's hard, but once you give in it's harder to turn back. We all made it through our childhoods without a screen in our laps. Times have changed, but children and their needs have not. My feeling is once you give your child the device you kiss your kids good bye. I've seen it in my own teenager and I see with much younger kids through melt downs when the device is taken away. It's sad. Don't set yourself up for having to detox your kid. It might seem easier at the moment to give in or get a break while the child trances out on the screen but this digital pacifier will be the hardest thing to wean your kids from. They will have just one childhood they will have a lifetime on being an adult plugged into a digital existence. Do your child and yourself the favor of not giving them a screen as a way to pass time. They will find other ways to occupy themselves, but not with the screen as an option.

Thank you Shannon! WE would love to talk more to you - email us hello@techwellness.com

I really struggle taking away my iPad from my 4 year old son. He becomes very temperamental and I almost always give in to letting him have it for more time because it's easier. I feel that this book has really done a great job examining the impacts of technology on youth and given me more strength in restricting my sons tech time.
