this one But, if you have children living with you or you work with children, then you need to read this book Technology, gaming, and social media are here and we can t realistically avoid them But it s hard to know the benefits and pitfalls and if it s hard for adults, imagine the difficulty for children, and that includes teens, whose brains are quite literally still developing.This book is not my usual fare for the blog but I saw it at NetGalley and had to have it I hoped that, despite its emphasis on the family, I would find it useful as a teacher Happily, I did.What I loved 1 The advice and information is firmly grounded in science and research Numerous studies are cited as are YouTube videos apropos, no but we also get anecdotes from the author s work with children of all ages as well as visits to classrooms 2 Palladino, the author, has a calm, sane, reasonable approach There s no the sky is falling nonsense She accepts that computers, gaming, social media, etc are here and it s the job of adults to help children learn how to manage their time and to make responsible decisions concerning technology.3 I learned, a lot Any book that teaches me something is a good one and this had a lot The information about voluntary and involuntary attention alone was a mix of new and familiar Add in the information about how computers affect the brain and its development and I have a lot to think about.4 The advice and suggestions, while definitely aimed at families as the title says, are easily adaptable to classrooms, camps, and other environments where children of all ages spend time.5 She respects the children That alone is huge Too many of the books I read, aimed at parents, show a distinct lack of respect for children They try to fix the child or address the child s issues only from the parental perspective Palladino neatly navigates the tricky balance between the child s needs and the family s needs While most of the advice given is to help the child, some of the advice she presents is aimed at the parents, to help them cope.6 This is related to number one Palladino clearly understands child development and it underpins her advice Suggestions given are not one size fits all but each one is broken down by age, how to make it applicable and relevant to the different ages and stages.7 A nice bonus for me is that I can count reading this book towards my required annual training for my teaching certificate A few minor complaints 1 A few statements and examples lacked context For instance, she talks about a father trying to engage his son in interests other than gaming but disregards, initially, the son s interest in drumming He, the father, stated that he d noticed his son tapping along to music but thought it was a nervous habit That confused the heck out of me because tapping along to music is both normal and common Palladino provided no context as to why the father though this was abnormal behavior I read it and thought the problem lay with the father and not the son context was seriously needed.2 Occasionally the text was dry but that hadto do with the science than Palladino s style Overall, her style was easy, clear, and witty.Verdict Buy it, read it, use it I m encouraging my school to buy this book and use it I think it would not only be educational for the other staff but a good foundation for developing an official technology policy If you re a parent, teacher, guidance counselor, etc I can not recommend this book enough Lucy Jo Palladino s book, Parenting in the Age of Attention Snatchers A Step by Step Guide to Balancing Your Child s Use of Technology is a timely contribution to parenting in the 21st Century An update version of the classical Marshmallow Experiment, the technology devices of today are magnets to the

version of the classical Marshmallow Experiment, the technology devices of today are magnets to the Involuntary Attention of kids and teens and adults Palladino complements the traditional research about willpower with modern results in neuroscience The limbic primitive system arm wrestling with the modern man s prefrontal cortex that develops during puberty and adolescence As a parent struggling with two kids of this age Palladino s work seems like a great tool yet to put into practice It gives perspective and ideas on how to help the children learn how to get the advantage of technology while they learn to self control, to use their Voluntary Attention As Palladino says Your child s ability to use an off button is quite possibly the most important technological competency she can learn For parents the book has two gifts First it emphasizes the importance of the relationship between parents and children Nothing isimportant than a good relationship among them and many times our effort to reduce the abuse of electronics ends up deteriorating the relationship Second it puts the finger on the responsibility of the parents Often we feel offended by the responses from our kids without acknowledging our contribution to the problem Beginning with using e nannies to giving a bad example with our own habits and not being able to separate the action from the agent The seven step guide begins with an parent autoevaluation and as it goes helps us focus on priorities, changes of midsets, challenges, and results Even though Palladino takes the parent back in the arena, it reduces the stress of the job by clearing expectations and giving tools to kindly cope with the frustration of setbacks while patiently celebrate the results.As adults we have a great deal to offer our kids Since our mental abilities are fully developed Palladino suggest for instance asking the right questions and providing the metacognition necessary to understand the big picture and long term implications of our actions.Additional resources like the American Academy of Pediatrics Media Life Plan recommendations and references toin depth studies enhance the toolkit provided by the book Technology is part of our lives, having the tools to focus and use them wisely is a challenge for all, but specially for kids who are learning to use their prefrontal cortex In the past attention snatchers were less exuberant but the plain mind wondering has always existed Our evolutionary drag is a challenge for modern world, and electronics are just a new struggle field Parenting in the Age of Attention Snatchers is a workbook to help our kids be successful adults and us happy parents This book is the first and only evidence based approach I have seen that helps parents decide how to balance to use of technology with the reality of how a child s brain develops Technology is here to stay but how do we make sure our kids still develop the important skill of deliberate, sustained attention They need our help to learn to use technology effectively, rather than be victims of it Thank goodness for Dr Palladino s real life examples and tools for parents, based on the most cutt

balanced approach gives me hope, and also gives me something solid to recommend to my patients OB GYN physician in Chicago, IL Duaa AlDrees Como padre de un ni o de cuatro a os, y al mismo tiempo

sobre el que reflexiono y en el que siento que necesito toda la informaci n posible para afrontarlo con visos de xito Veo con recelo c mo los dispositivos electr nicos que nos tienen conectados a todas horas est n creando una nueva necesidad de estar permanentemente estimulados, llev ndonos a sufir un miedo a perdernos algo Observo c mo se va reduciendo progresivamente el tiempo para reflexionar, la capacidad para estar solos y, por qu no decirlo, para que un ni o se aburra y sepa gestionarlo Y todo eso me inquieta.Me gusta el tono de la autora, calmado, sosegado y razonable No demoniza nada, no pretende ofrecer recetas milagrosas En ese sentido, me quedo con su frase A largo plazo, la nica estrategia que da resultado es que los ni os crezcan queriendo limitar su propia utilizaci n de los medios digitales, a fin de que se sienta motivado a ejercer la atenci n voluntaria incluso cuando nadie mira Pero eso es muy dif cil, claro.He dicho que no ofrece recetas milagrosas, pero s realiza apuntes de lo que ella considera un uso saludable y sano de la tecnolog a Incide mucho en la necesidad de sopesar pros y contras de su uso, de buscar salidas beneficiosas, realistas y sostenidas, de no negarse en redondo ante el uso de unos dispositivos con los que necesariamente tenemos que convivir Incluye a toda la familia en sus indicaciones, apuntando tambi n hacia los adultos, que deber an servir de ejemplo en el uso de los dispositivos durante sus relaciones familiares.Por encima de todo, creo que hace un llamamiento a la reflexi n y al an lisis del tema No recaer en la tecnolog a como ni era , sino potenciar sus ventajas y trabajar con el ni o en considerar sus desventajas Para ello, insiste en explicar una y otra vez quiz s demasiado, incluso, se hace algo repetitiva en la diferencia entre atenci n voluntaria e involuntaria.El libro, adem s, cubre todas las edades hasta la adolescencia Como de unos a otros hay muchas diferencias de madurez, capacidad y uso de la tecnolog a, en varias ocasiones desglosa sus argumentos en tres bloques, que corresponden m s o menos con la etapa preescolar, la etapa de primaria y la etapa de secundaria.En el lado negativo podr a mencionar c mo en ocasiones no se acaba de explicar bien en cuanto a correlaci n vs causalidad, incluso en alg n momento establece alg n ejemplo de relaci n causa efecto bastante dudoso O c mo en otras situaciones algunas conclusiones parece sac rselas de la manga sin una base s lida Incluso, y ya es m s personal m o que cuesti n de la autora, por momentos me fallaba el contexto al vivir en un pa s diferente al suyo.Y me sobran tambi n las continuas referencias a casos concretos que ha conocido la autora, ya que un caso particular no significa nada de nada Si bien a adir uno aqu y otro all puede permitir ejemplificar alguno de sus argumentos, el haber utilizado tantos parece querer indicar que son parte del an lisis, y no deber an serlo ya que las teor as cient ficas no se construyen as This book was really useful Palladino starts by differentiating between involuntary attention and voluntary attention Involuntary attention is captured by strong sensory stimuli, passive, and receptive Because it originates in the brain stem sensory cortex, it s also known as bottom up attention We re used to using this pathway It s easy the path of least resistance and it s kept our species alive.Voluntary attention, on the other hand, is intentional and takes active effort It orig This book was really useful Palladino starts by differentiating between involuntary attention and voluntary attention Involuntary attention is captured by strong sensory stimuli, passive, and receptive Because it originates in the brain stem sensory cortex, it s also known as bottom up attention We re used to using this pathway It s easy the path of least resistance and it s kept our species alive.Voluntary attention, on the other hand, is intentional and takes active effort It originates in the prefrontal cortex and so is known as top down attention or cognitive control Initiating the executive functions requires this kind of effortful attention.During most tasks, the two types of attention work together, although most screen time captures kids attention INvoluntarily Palladino recommends helping kids to develop an awareness of when they re using each kind of attention Practicing voluntary attention, she notes, can strengthen the PFC If kids are only ever using involuntary attention, their capacity to focus on less stimulating activities can diminish oraccurately, never develop properly in the first place.Some interesting specifics Reading is EXTREMELY important in allowing kids to form deep reading brains rather than just quick scanning brains The biggest influence on how much kids read is how much their parents read Nothing else has as much impact, not even household income Using voluntary attention requires the right amount of stimulus You need a little to get started, but if you have too much, then you lose the ability to concentrate Not getting started on homework may actually mean a kid is overstimulated for example, she may not know how to start or be afraid of failing According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, studies have shown that excessive media use can lead to attention problems Children and teens should engage with entertainment media for nothan one to two hours per day, and that should be high quality content Habitual gaming has been linked with low performance in school, but it s only a correlation at this point causation hasn t been proven In kids who already have ADHD,than an hour of gaming per day can worsen symptoms significantly.Palladino doesn t dispute that screen time of various kinds can be beneficial for children She does suggest determining, as a parent, if a child s media use is interfering with physical exercise or homework, or if it might be causing him to lose patience for activities with less sensory stimulation.Among other recommendations, Palladino suggests gaming with your child and acting as a sort of media mentor instituting a family media use plan instituting a media curfew and media holidays I own this book and would be happy to lend locally Important info to consider in this age of technology, screens, and constant distractions I not only found this book helpful in parenting but also in my own use of technology. Well worth a read to understand the difference between voluntary purposeful, e.g working on an assignment and involuntary aimless, e.g watching TV attention, and how that impacts on children s learning The tone of writing is informative without being judgemental and there are some handy tips for helping kids learn to use screen time mindfully and effectively rather than obsessively There are no instant fixes but the framework is set out logically to guide parents through from the toddler Well worth a read to understand the difference between voluntary purposeful, e.g working on an assignment and involuntary aimless, e.g watching TV attention, and how that impacts on children s learning The tone of writing is informative without being judgemental and there are some handy tips for helping kids learn to use screen time mindfully and effectively rather than obsessively There are no instant fixes but the framework is set out logically to guide parents through from the toddler stage to teens I ve started using some of the simpler suggestions, like installing a time locking app on our iPad, and can see the value in longer term planning for things like avoiding having screens in the kids bedrooms.I did think there was perhaps a touch too much reliance on the model of the marshmallow test, in the context of kids being able to resist an immediate smaller reward in favour of receiving a larger reward later on A key finding was that there was a positive correlation between being able to resist for longer and better achievement in school in the long term However, if you go beyond this initial study to resist replications of the classic experiment it s been shown there are mitigating factors like the family s socioeconomic status SES that also need to be taken into account A child from a family with a low SES may not always have enough food so on a test like the marshmallow experiment they re set up to fail because food is a scarce resource they don t know they can count on, and so they ll obviously take the immediate reward Then projecting to the future kids from families with a low SES often have greater barriers to accessing education, so their long term school achievement will be lower than that of kids from high income families who know they can rely on food always being available, so are less tempted by immediate rewards Some context about this would have been useful given the heavy reliance on this framework in the book 2 Give clear and simple instructions3 Do not play with your iphone when you are with your child4 Practice active listening your child5 Teach them how to concentrate Voluntary action 5.1 Method 1 Do physical activity with them Sports are the best type of voluntary action 5.2 Method 2 While they are working, stay with them and work as well If they see you working, they also will understand that they need to work and do not let the attention snatchers6 AAP recommends 1 2 hours of enter 2 Give clear and simple instructions3 Do not play with your iphone when you are with your child4 Practice active listening your child5 Teach them how to concentrate Voluntary action 5.1 Method 1 Do physical activity with them Sports are the best type of voluntary action 5.2 Method 2 While they are working, stay with them and work as well If they see you working, they also will understand that they need to work and do not let the attention snatchers6 AAP recommends 1 2 hours of entertainment media per day7 watch Tv with your kids to tell them the content and go online with them Watch some YouTube videos with them8 popular video game just dance, mario kart9 choose outdoor holidays and vacations10 celebrate success and appreciate your child s efforts Probablyinformation than parents need to address their particular family s issues, but the practical answers they seek are in there Also, the advice cover kids from toddlers to teens so parents may find themselves rereading sections of this book years from now.
