Product Details


“New research now shows that screen time is correlated with changes in the brain and that children and young teens are particularly vulnerable. Near epidemic levels of teenage and young adult suicides, lack of motivation, and social isolation are alarming. The Tech Solution pulls no punches, but fortunately offers all of us hope and practical, straightforward guidelines for how to protect our most important resource: the next generations’ brains.”
—Daniel Levitin, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of Successful Aging

“If you are a parent wondering about how to approach the use of technology with your children, this thoughtful guide provides science-backed discussions of how the brain responds to the complex ways digital devices compel us to use them. With this knowledge, Dr. Kang provides practical suggestions to steer the use of these devices in helpful ways that can improve your child’s development and well-being—and your important relationship with each other as a family.” 
Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., New York Times bestselling co-author of The Whole-Brain Child, Clinical Professor, UCLA School of Medicine, and Executive Director, Mindsight Institute 

“As we learn more about the powerful impact of new technologies on the health and well-being of kids, it has never been more important for parents to teach responsible ways to use these tools. Dr. Kang offers a practical blueprint for achieving this urgent goal.”
—Cal Newport, New York Times bestselling author of Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World
“Without idolizing or demonizing technology, Dr. Shimi Kang offers parents and teachers a science-based guide to its appropriate and positive place in our children’s lives that’s filled with practical advice and heart-sourced wisdom.”
—Gabor Maté, M.D., author of #1 national bestseller In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction

“This is just the book that parents need as they try to make sound decisions about their children’s exposure to technology. Dr. Kang draws on the latest findings in neuroscience to advance our understanding of the impact of technology on the developing brain, and how we can maximize the benefits and avoid the dangers of social media, the internet, and gaming.”

—Dr. Stuart Shanker, author of Self-Reg: How to Help Your Child (and You) Break the Stress Cycle and Successfully Engage with Life and founder of the MEHRIT Centre

“[Kang] offers practical strategies that parents and caregivers of children can adopt to augment the benefits of good tech.”
