    I normally do not like to review non-fiction books, but when I was asked to review this book, "52 Ways to Connect with Your Smartphone Obsessed Kid", I thought the topic was so relevant in today's society that I decided to read the book. Jonathan McKee is a writer, speaker, the president of The Source for Youth Ministry, married and the father of three.

    I found that his advice on dealing with the non-communicative teenagers of today was on the mark. His recommendations on getting your kids to talk to YOU instead of texting away to their friends were easy to do and also fair. Although all of these methods will not work for everyone's children, at least some are worth a try. My children and their spouses are glued to their screens also and I'm tempted to try some of these methods out on them when they come to visit. How much fun is it to sit in a room full of adults who are watching their phone screens and their thumbs are doing the texting dance. We end up watching them play on their phones. Not fun for the older folks, I can tell you. If you can try to nip this behavior in the bud it may have a great effect in the long run. Although my kids are grown, my sister has two teenagers and I am going to make sure that she reads this book.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

    Absolutely love this book! Writing practical tips and ideas from a wealth of experience and wisdom, McKee shares some really great ideas on how to connect to children/teens for parents, grandparents, youth workers..well, just about anybody! Further, these tips aren't just for the younger generations; there are some great communication and connnecting skills, that once learned, will open up some great experiences. My personal favorites are The House to "Hang"; The Safe Source; A New Perspective of Back Talk and The Mani-Pedi. Each chapter includes Questions to Ponder for personal reflection.

    This book is chock full of practical ideas to bring back face to face conversations instead of communication through a screen of some sort. We live in a world where everything happens on a small screen. This book came along at the right time for me to regain control over my "smartphone obsessed kids". The suggestions are concrete, practical, easy to put into practice ideas, not general or vague concepts. Sprinkled with personal experiences, the book is easy and fun to read.

    I was given a free copy of the book by Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It provided some helpful tips in engaging conversation starters for parents with their children. A couple of my favorite topics were the No-Tech Tuesday or No tech at the Table. It is something we usually don't practice, but I see how it can help. Although my children do not have their own phones, the will pick up ours and even have their own apps on each of our phones they use whenever they use them. They also have laptops and gaming systems they use just as much. I look forward to implementing a few of the suggestions in this book into our day routines NOW, especially now that school will be starting back.

    As a high school substitute teacher, I know all too well how difficult it is to engage students in classrooms that allow smartphones. As a mom of a 20-something, I wish I had had this book years ago. The author himself has three smartphone obsessed teens and has found all of these ideas to work, if not in his house, with others. He feels it is vital we notice our kids (which means we have to take time off from using our devices as well), teach them to be tech enabled, but not tech dependent, and ask questions which encourage dialogue with them, not monologue. In the back of the book he provides questions for good conversation in each of the 52 venues, as well as sources for further information. One of my favorite ideas is "No Tech Tuesday". I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
