Everywhere you look, parents and children are busy with their smartphones and their laptops. The children are playing video games or using apps on their iPod. We are glued to the television set, We sleep with our phone on the nightstand. There is hardly a moment where some parents opt to put down our electronics or delay our chores with the intent to properly engage our kids. We assume that our children are learning from the television and from the gadgets that we give them, but we don't realize that there is a whole world of skills that they aren't learning while their eyes are glued to the screen.
The reality is that we are setting our children up for failure by not engaging them and teaching them the skills that they will need far into their adult lives. The bitter truth is that our lack of engagement with our children can actually cause them to form an eccentric personality, or even a personality disorder later in life. Some of the most difficult people are plagued with anti-social or conduct disorders, obsessive compulsive personality disorder ('perfectionism disease'), borderline personality disorder, and schizoid or avoidant personality disorders. Many of these personality disorders that cause a person to struggle through life have a 'learned' from childhood component to them. The children who grow into adults with these personality disorders may experience relationship and work problems, difficulty coping with stresses in life, parenting struggles, and depression. Some of these individuals go on to have significant addiction problems, or may even attempt or commit suicide.

* I received a free copy of this audiobook from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.
There is an epidemic happening and it is having a detrimental effect on the young children of today.
No, I'm not talking about the H1N1 flu epidemic, or the bird
This audiobook is very short. The entire listening experience is over in nineteen minutes.
The fact that the author was able to cram so many good ideas forways to engage your child within such a short span of time is impressive.
I was happy to find that more than 50% of her suggestions were activities that I had done with my children when they were young.
The target listenership for this audiobook is parents with children ages 0 to 10. She offers suggestions that are age appropriate and that can be modified and expanded as the child grows.
The narration of this audiobook was terrific.
I rate both the audiobook's content and the narration as 5 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
