Connected Families provides resources for families to thrive. We love partnering with others who share our vision. Recently, Lynne Jackson wrote an endorsement of the book, 52 Ways to Connect With Your Smartphone Obsessed Kid by Jonathan McKee. She shares her impressions of the book below:
“Jonathan McKee deftly leads parents to find their way into rich connection and deep influence with their kids, while avoiding common defaults of either giving up or attempting to control kids’ screen use. The practical, inspiring wisdom in this book will help you raise kids with strong character and good judgment, prepared to wisely manage their smartphone use as they launch to independence. And the added bonus – they’ll want to come back and visit because of the quality of your relationship with them!”
