Generation Text: Raising Well-Adjusted Kids in an Age of Instant Everything | [Michael Osit]

Generation Text: Raising Well-Adjusted Kids in an Age of Instant Everything

A teenage boy goes shopping on the Internet, sees something he likes, immediately reaches his mother via cell phone, and in a few short keystrokes, types in her credit card number and gets a shiny new lacrosse stick. Thanks to technological advances, including computers, the Internet, cell phones, and satellites, today's children are faced with a world markedly more complex - and often more distracting - than that of any other preceding generation.

Publisher's Summary

A teenage boy goes shopping on the Internet, sees something he likes, immediately reaches his mother via cell phone, and in a few short keystrokes, types in her credit card number and gets a shiny new lacrosse stick.

Thanks to technological advances, including computers, the Internet, cell phones, and satellites, today's children are faced with a world markedly more complex - and often more distracting - than that of any other preceding generation.

Generation Text examines why and how this phenomenon shapes children's values, attitudes, and behavior in a way that is fundamentally different from previous generations...and provides strategies for coping with the particular challenges of growing up in the new millennium.

Parents who want to ensure that their children successfully develop key social skills, a healthy identity, and a strong work ethic need to make the right choices every step of the way.

Clinical psychologist Dr. Michael Osit draws on his professional - as well as personal - experiences working with children and teens who have been challenged by unprecedented access to information, possessions, and temptation. Using case studies and examples, this audiobook provides reasonable, down-to-earth strategies listeners can use to address the unique issues faced by children surrounded by infinite choices...and very few limits.
