“How to deal with devices and screens is one of the biggest challenges for today’s parents. With The Art of Screen Time, Anya Kamenetz comes to the rescue. Marshalling the latest science, she provides an indispensable guide to helping children — and families — thrive in the digital age.” — Arianna Huffington, CEO of Thrive Global

“Kamenetz cuts through the rumor, hysteria, and guilt around children and screen time to get right down to the information I want: the data. The Art of Screen Time is a book I will keep on my shelf for a long time, as it’s a lucid and reliable source of honest and clear advice around children’s relationships with the digital world and my best way forward as a parent and as a teacher.” — Jessica Lahey, The Gift of Failure

“Blending scholarly evidence and the experiences of numerous families, The Art of Screen Time is a well-researched and reassuring guide to raising kids in a world where technology is everywhere.” — danah boyd, author of It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens
