In his book Wired Child, Dr. Richard Freed wrote, “Kids’ use of technology is not the problem. The problem is our kids’ extreme overuse of entertainment technologies that is displacing the experiences that are fundamental to a strong mind and happy, successful life.” Freed examines these issues both as a psychologist and a parent with the goal of helping other adults feel less alone as they support children who experience problems resulting from the overuse of technology. Freed goes on to write, “More than ever, our kids need us to be their guide, to help them on their journey . . .” Throughout each chapter of his book, Freed sheds light on digital myths and suggests strategies to provide children with a “. . . loving, rewarding childhood amid the challenges of this digital age.“ 

Dr. Freed will be presenting to the community at Crossroads Academy in Lyme, NH, on Monday, April 23, from 6:30–8:00 pm. The address is free and open to the public.
