The Big Disconnect

Catherine Steiner-Adair

Overview

Smartphones and computers permeate all aspects of society today. The vast interconnectivity, ease, and speed of receiving information and sending it through the world wide web have become hallmarks of living in the 21st century.

We accepted the digital with open arms without asking how it would affect our children's development, personal, social, and inner lives. Steiner-Adair tries to provide answers on how the digital affects our children through the lens of her experience as a clinical psychologist.

Catherine Steiner-Adair is a teacher, author, school consultant, and a renowned clinical psychologist with years of practice working with children, parents, and schools. In her second book, The Big Disconnect, Catherine explains how the devices meant to connect us and improve our lives can often do quite the opposite.

"Every time our child's texting, TV, electronic games, and social networking take the place of family, and every time our tech habits interrupt our time with them, that pattern is broken and the primacy of family takes another hit."
