Increasing numbers of parents grapple with children who are acting out without obvious reason. Many of these children are diagnosed with ADHD, bipolar disorder, or autism spectrum disorder. They are then medicated with often poor and side effect–riddled results. Victoria L. Dunckley, who specializes in working with children and families who have failed to respond to previous treatment, has pioneered a new program. In her work with more than 500 children, teens, and young adults diagnosed with psychiatric disorders, 80 percent showed marked improvement after completing the four-week program presented here. Interactive screens, including those on video games, laptops, cell phones, and tablets, overstimulate a child’s nervous system. While virtually no one in today’s connected world can completely shun electronic stimuli, Dunckley shows how the most vulnerable among us — our children — can and should be spared their damaging effects.
Praise for Reboot Your Child's Brain"Impressively-researched, eye-opening, and eminently practical, Reboot Your Child’s Brain is an invaluable contribution to any parent’s library. Dr Dunckley’s plan is sure to provide relief to a great many children — and their families."— Craig Malkin, Ph.D., Instructor in Psychology, Harvard Medical School"Victoria Dunckley makes a convincing case that parents should be very concerned about their children’s constant exposure to electronic screen-based entertainment. Citing medical research as well as her work with hundreds of patients, Dr. Dunckley explains how electronic media overwhelm children’s nervous systems and impair their physical and mental functioning. Families who follow her practical approach to discontinuing electronic screen time will see dramatic improvement in their children’s health and behavior."— Jessica Solodar, award-winning medical journalist and former medical writer for Massachusetts General Hospital Dept of Psychiatry and the Child & Adolescent Bipolar Foundation “Dr. Victoria Dunckley has given every child psychiatrist and pediatrician in America a wonderful gift. This book gives us a tool to share with the parents of the millions of children in the U.S. that are agitated, unfocused, and out of control. She also answers the question about why this problem is accelerating in the last decade: it is screen time, not a lack of Ritalin. I completely agree with her premise and her interventions. Thank you!”— Scott Shannon M.D., integrative child psychiatrist, past president of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine, and author of Please Don’t Label My Child "Parents are constantly asking, ‘What are the effects of screen use on my kids, how much is too much, and how can I regulate the use of screens by my kids?’ Finally, thanks to Dr. Dunckley's ‘Reboot’ program, parents have the answer and the tools to work on a solution!” — Ann Corwin, Ph.D., M.Ed., Parenting Education Consultant, www.theparentingdoctor.com
