Veteran Chicago-area child-psychiatrist and Northwestern University faculty member Dr. Eitan Schwarz is launching his national campaign to assist parents manage their kids’ media lives in comprehensive, positive and healthy ways. He is beginning with appearances in suburban Chicago libraries. His scheduled appearances are online at http://mydigitalfamily.org
Dr. Schwarz will discuss his book, “Kids, Parents & Technology: A Guide for Young Families.” Known to his patients as Dr. S, the Skokie physician offers fresh child- and family-oriented thinking.
Dr. Alvin Rosenfeld, a Harvard Medical School lecturer praises the book: “Finally someone- Dr. Schwarz – has given parents an easy-to read, but very helpful guide to managing the electronic world that surrounds children and us. Read it!”
“I want to reset parental attitudes and empower parents with the tools to make their digital families successful digital families” remarks Dr. Schwarz, a doctor with both a mission and the solution to managing digital media families.
“After a decade of feeling overwhelmed about digital media consumption by kids, it’s for parents to take charge of media consumption as they do other home appliances. Setting limits have proved to be insufficient solutions. Parents need to rethink the use of digital media for their digital families. That’s why I wrote this book.”
