"Raising Kids in the Media Age" by Jay Dunlap

One thing we did not discuss was that, in his book, Jay offers practical suggestions for developing healthy family habits when using media.

Establish boundaries -- content as well as time -- for children using media. Be available to spend time with your children in those hours that used to be sucked up by media. Make a family video.

Jay explains it all in more detail in the book.

I recommend the book even for people without children at home because Jay provides observations about how media affect all of us, not just little ones. The book has revealing facts about the media and their influence on individuals, families, and society.
