The message in "Face to Face" is simple yet profound: Increase actual face-to-face connection and keep childhood real so children will be resilient, healthy, and happy. Major focuses of the book include how digital technology is influencing children's lives and how resiliency and other social/emotional skills need special attention as parents navigate this new terrain. Authored by a team of pediatricians and educators, this book is a goldmine of neuroscience-based information on topics such as how children's brains grow, best practices for fostering resiliency and social/emotional learning, and practical recommendations for being mindful about screen time and reducing busy-ness.
