Empowering Parents to Foster a Healthier Relationship with Technology During the School Holidays and Beyond.
In "The Tech Diet," Brad Marshall, a seasoned psychologist, offers a comprehensive guide for parents navigating the digital landscape with their children and teens. With the school holidays approaching, Marshall's insights on managing addictive gaming and social media use come at the perfect time.
The book is a gem for parents seeking practical strategies, written in an easy-to-understand language. Marshall delves into the psychological principles underpinning addictive gaming habits, helping parents recognise when tech use becomes problematic. His real-world strategies empower parents to take action without overwhelming them.
