Wired Child: Reclaiming Childhood in a Digital Age
For our spring 2017 Speaker Series, we welcomed Dr. Richard Freed, Ph.D., author of Wired Child: Reclaiming Childhood in a Digital Age, on Saturday, April 22, 2017. Richard is a child and adolescent psychologist and a leading authority on raising children in the digital age.
Dr. Richard Freed discussed how to build your child’s bond with family and foster school success amid the allure of digital screens. Dr. Freed’s book, Wired Child is available for sale in our Tomten’s school store.
Our kids’ overuse of social media, video games, and texting is eclipsing their connection with family and school—the two most important contributors to their well-being. The result is a generation of kids who suffer from extraordinary rates of emotional and academic problems, and are falling prey to an epidemic of video game and internet addictions.
