Book Review & #Giveaway: Growing Up Social by Gary Chapman & Arlene Pellicane

*I received the product in this post for purposes of review.  All opinions expressed are my own.

Growing Up Social
by Gary Chapman & Arlene Pellicane 

About the Book:

"Is technology bringing your family closer together or driving you farther apart?

Children today are no longer playing hide-and-seek outside or curling up with a good book—instead they’ve been introduced to a world of constant digital entertainment through television, video games, and mobile devices. And while technology has the potential to add value to our lives and families, it can also erode a sense of togetherness and hinder a child’s emotional and social development.

In Growing Up Social, Gary Chapman and Arlene Pellicane will empower you with the necessary tools to make positive changes…starting today. Through stories, wit, and wisdom, you’ll discover how to take back your home from an over dependence on screens. Plus, you’ll learn to teach the five A+ skills that every healthy child needs to master: affection, appreciation, anger management, apology, and attention.

•Equip your child to be relationally rich in a digital world
•Replace mindless screen time with meaningful family time
•Establish simple boundaries that make a huge difference
•Discover what’s working for families that have become screen savvy
•Learn healthy ways to occupy your child while you get things done

Now is the time to equip your child to live with screen time, not for screen time. No phone, tablet, or gaming device can teach your child how to have healthy relationships—only you can."

My Review:
In a world where technology rules, it can be difficult to balance that time our kids spend with their devices and the time they spend without them. As a mother of 3 teeneagers, I am all to familiar with this dilemma.  I am relieved that my kids didn't grow up with so much available technology, and didn't get started with the "social" side of it until the last few years.
The book Growing Up Social is full of stories, examples and ideas on how to balance tech time with your family.  No not just the kids, you the parent as well.  This book talks about 5 healthy A+ Skills that children should master:  affection, anger management, apology, attention and appreciation.  It also addresses parental authority, security and the single parent and screen time.
I think this book would be a great read for every new parent.  It is starting earlier and earlier these days and I see babies with iPads and cell phones to keep them busy.  Having the information within this book would be invaluable for the future.  There is an awesome group discussion section in the back with questions to get the conversations started.  Great for youth groups or homeschool families.
There is also a great quiz that will let you know if your child has too much screen time.

You can get more information on Growing Up Social on their Official Website And check out the Book Trailer:
