Drawing on research and interviews with educators, psychologists, and kids themselves, Raising a Screen-Smart Kid offers practical advice on how parents can help their kids avoid the pitfalls and reap the benefits of the digital age by: • using social media to enhance connection with friends and family, instead of following strangers and celebrities, which is a predictor of loneliness and depression • finding online support and community for conditions such as depression and eating disorders, while avoiding potential triggers such as #Thinspiration Pinterest boards • learning and developing life skills through technology--for example, by problem-solving in online games--while avoiding inappropriate content Written by a public health expert and the creator of the popular blog Rants from Mommyland, this book shows parents how to help their kids navigate friendships, bullying, dating, self-esteem, and more online.

Researchers estimate that 40%-50% of all first marriages will end in divorce or permanent separation and about 60% - 65% of second marriages will end in divorce. Although divorce has always been a part of society, divorce has become more common in the last 50 years. A separation or divorce is a highly stressful and emotional experience for everyone involved, but children often feel that their whole world has turned upside down. At any age, it can be traumatic to witness the dissolution of your parents' marriage and the breakup of the family. Kids may feel shocked, uncertain, or angry. Some may even feel guilty, blaming themselves for the problems at home. Divorce is never a seamless process and, inevitably, such a transitional time doesn't happen without some measure of grief and hardship. But you can dramatically reduce your children's pain by making their well-being your top priority. This book is written to advise parents as to how to help their children through their divorce. With those recommendations, the parents will discover that the divorce process need not be as painful for their children as conventional wisdom suggests it is. They will also find that they have become better parents and that their children have a much better chance of living healthy, happy, and successful lives.
