This no-holds barred, straightforward, practical guide provides over 365 fun, exciting and simple ways for parents to unplug and reconnect with their children. You will not be reading pages and pages of overwhelming research, and still be left without the answers you are searching for. When you are finished reading this book, you will have the knowledge that you need to live in this technological world and know how and why it is important to connect with your children. Technology is a very important part of our lives, but it has its place and must be kept in check. Parents need to encourage their children as well, to unplug from technology and get back to basics, like playing outside, doing arts and crafts, engaging in physical activities, and reading. Commit to being unplugged one hour a day, spending focused and connected time with your children. You will be so happy you did!"........Dr. Cindy
