Original Title

Parents dans un monde d'écrans Comment vous brancher à l'univers de vos enfants de 0 à 18 ans

Everything you have to do (or not do!) to offer the best guidance to children and teenagers, in a world where screens are everywhere.

What do we really know nowadays about the habits of young people, where the use of screens and visits to social networks are concerned? What's the real impact on family life? On young people's social, emotional and romantic relationships? On their sexuality, mental health, learning at school? Is there cause for worry? If yes, what about? How can we manage the use of these technologies by children and teenagers? At what age do we allow them access?

Based on the latest knowledge, this book offers an overview of current issues concerning youth and technologies: online games and Internet addiction, compulsive use of phones and Instagram, the cult of the image, fascination for YouTubers, “sexting”, phones in class, etc. In particular, it provides avenues for reflection, tips and tools for better managing these practices. It is designed first and foremost for parents, but will also interest anyone involved in education (teachers, intervenors, psychologists). In a simple,
concrete and accessible way, you will finally learn what is really important to understand about multiple platforms; what courses of action to adopt; in short, everything you have to do (or not do!) to better guide young people (children and teenagers) in a world where screens are everywhere

Strong points

The authors have called on experts in various fields to
offer multiple points of view on the topic and emphasize
practical advice.

The book covers childhood, pre-adolescence and
adolescence, right up to the beginning of adulthood.

All subjects related to the use of screens are covered:
private life in relation to public life, family dynamics,
mental health (Internet addiction, anxiety and
depression), learning at school, friendships, sexuality,
bullying, cyberstalking, marketing and publicity.

The book is not meant to be alarmist. It presents both the
“dangers” of some platforms and the positive initiatives
made possible by social networks, for example.
