It is a paradox of our digital future: we cannot withhold digital media from our children and adolescents, but we also cannot leave them alone with the influences and changes that digital media brings about. Children's brains develop over the first fifteen to sixteen years of their lives, and the outcomes especially self-control and individual thinking are essential for media savviness. But the early introduction of electronic devices can affect brain development, potentially reducing children's long-term ability to thrive in our digital world.

This book, by medical and child-development experts, describes the critical stages of development and discusses what kinds of media and devices might be appropriate at different ages. Acknowledging that there is no one-size-fits-all answer, Growing Up Healthy offers parents a way to think through, step by step, what is best for the young person in their care.
