This handy book lays out the essential information needed to understand and prevent excessive Internet use that negatively impacts behavior, education, family life, and even physical health.

He shows how to spot digital addictions, and offers whole family approaches for limiting the harmful effects of too much screen time, such as helping kids to learn to control their own Internet use. Discussing both the good and bad aspects of the Internet, this book tells you everything you need to know to help children and young people use the Internet in a healthy, balanced way.
