growing up Social By Gary Chapman

In this digital age, children are spending more and more time interacting with a screen rather than a parent. Technology has the potential to add value to our families, but it can also erode a sense of togetherness and hinder a child's emotional growth. In Growing Up Social: Raising Relational Kids in a Screen-Driven World, you'll learn how to take back your home from an over-dependence on screens. Discover the five A+ skills needed to give your child the relational edge in a screen-driven world: affection, appreciation, anger management, apology, and attention. Today's screens aren't just in our living rooms; they are in our pockets. Now is the time to equip your child to live with screen time, not for screen time. Constant entertainment is not the goal of childhood. No phone, tablet, or gaming device can teach your child how to have healthy relationships; only you can. Growing Up Social will help you:
  • Equip your child to be relational rich in a digital world
  • Replace mindless screen time with meaningful family time
  • Establish simple boundaries that make a huge difference
  • Read what's working for the screen savvy family down the street
  • Prepare your child to succeed down the road in relationships and life
  • Learn healthy ways to occupy your child while you get things done

growing up Social

By: Gary Chapman

       Arlene Pellicane

I love reading books by Author Gary Chapman. Anything i have has always been very helpful. We all have to admit our homes have become  high tech.  I s this helpful or is it hurting the family? TV, video games, cell phones, I Pads, and computers.  They are spending more time with these things then going out to play and exercise and fresh air.

Social interaction is lost. Kids young as 1 1/2 are being allowed on these gadgets.  Growing up with a life of gadgets leaves kids not knowing how to interact with others. They become loners.  Gary Chapman has 5 A+  skills to  get your kids back where they need to be. 

1. Equip your child to be  relationally rich in a digital world.

2. Replace mindless screen time with meaningful family time

3. Establish simple boundaries that make a huge  difference

4. Discover what's working  for families that have become screen savvy

5. Learn healthy ways to occupy your child while you get things done

It is to easy just to give these gadgets to your kids to entertain them while you do things you need to do. Not good. Lets get our children back. Set good boundaries  for our children.

   I am sure you would enjoy this book. will be giving one copy away.
