Reviews
"Of all the questions parents ask me as a child psychiatrist, the most common one--by far--is how to handle their children's use of screens. This groundbreaking instant classic of a book answers that question definitively. Clear, persuasive, and rooted in the most current research as well as the wisdom of the ages, How to Raise a Healthy Gamer is the book you've been looking for--not only for your child but for yourself as well!"--Edward Hallowell, MD, author of Driven to Distraction and ADHD 2.0

"In homes everywhere, negotiations around gaming are tiresome and heated. Dr. Kanojia's approach allows your child to be part of the solution--a valuable component to both reducing the combativeness that often accompanies these negotiations and to staying in close relationship with them. I highly recommend this calm, structured, and nurturing approach to better and less screen use."--Tina Payne Bryson, PhD, New York Times bestselling coauthor of The Whole-Brain Child and No-Drama Discipline

"Among the most important decisions we make about our parenting, screen use and--in particular--gaming will define our family. This groundbreaking book will give you what you need to come to an informed and sensible resolution that works for you. It's a book that will give you the strength to live within your values and that will support your hope for a family that is deeply connected."--Kim John Payne, author of Simplicity Parenting and The Soul of Discipline
