"If you're tired of seeing just the top of your kid's head bent over a smartphone, Jonathan McKee's new book, 52 Ways to Connect with Your Smartphone-Obsessed Kid, was written for you. . .and me. . .as he challenges parents (and grandparents) to examine the example we provide and encourages us we are not powerless to change the tide. . .This book is one I'll buy for my adult children as well, as my grandsons are on the journey into a world very different than the one in which I raised my sons. Jonathan's book is long overdue. "

"I regularly find that parents want help but dont know where to find the good stuff. So much parenting advice is fear-based and impractical. But Jonathans gift to us is that he writes to parents from the intersection of hopeful parenting and practical ideas."
Mark Oestreicher, Author of Many Books, including A Parents Guide to Understanding Teenage Brains and Understanding Your Young Teen

"As someone who speaks professionally to companies about managing distractions in a constantly connected workplace, I'm continuously asked for a resource from people on how to handle these issues with their kids. Jonathan's book is the resource I've been seeking for years. Not only will I recommend it, but I plan to adopt many of the strategies when I walk through the threshold of my home."
Curt Steinhorst, National Speaker, President, Promentum Group
"Parents concerns about their kids screen use often lead to anxiety-based control through contracts, apps, and filters. The result is usually alienated kids who havent learned self-control. Jonathan McKee will inspire and equip you with practical tools to build connection and influence with your kids, as you guide them toward true responsibility and wisdom with their cell phones and screens."
Lynne Jackson, Co-Founder of Connected Families and Coauthor of Discipline that Connects with Your Child's Heart
"Jonathan McKee has written a stunning compilation of knowledge and information on the electronic world. Its an especially eye-opening experience for parents who might not be as "tech-savvy" as their children. Its packed with great ideas to turn what could be possibly dangerous issues into positive situations and solutions. An excellent resource for every parent!"
