I am so happy to present to you my new book, "Parenting In The Screen Age - A Guide for Calm Conversations".
In the book I cover many topics, designed to help you as a parent have calmer and more productive conversations with your children about the technology in their lives and its impact upon their health, happiness and development. You will find that a lot of the tips and advice in the book are also applicable in many other aspects of family life and will help you towards creating harmonious, open and loving relationships in your home.
I'd also love you to join us for our free monthly "Chapter Club", where we discuss the themes and ideas from the book and help you build upon the ideas and techniques contained within. Read more about this here and learn how to sign up.

I truly enjoyed Parenting in the Screen Age for many reasons but mostly how Delaney peppers each chapter with solutions to whatever concept had been introduced whether it was the importance of sleep amidst engaging and distracting technology or staying mentally and emotionally healthy in a tech environment that promotes--according to much of the solid research including my own work--anxiety, stress and depression.

Dr. Ruston’s book “Parenting in the Screen Age: A Guide for Calm Conversations” is a must read for parents especially now more than ever with the increased focus on social media and screen time during the pandemic. Dr. Ruston offers practical suggestions for ways to navigate the issues around screen time in a down to earth way that will resonate for all readers. While my kids are now adults, we still benefitted from the suggestions Dr. Ruston offers to create a healthier relationship with screen time within a family setting. As a result of this book, we have been on our screens a bit less and talking more.
