None of us needs a book to tell us that our teenagers need more balance between the real world and the world of social media. We know that just from living with them, and most of us struggle ourselves with how to help them find that balance. So I was hopeful when I picked up this book by Ana Homayoun, promising to help teenagers (and tweens) learn how to make choices. The first 3 chapters are a little repetitive so don't get bogged down. But once I got to chapter 4, I found myself underlining an ...more

This is the first book I have read doesn't feel like it is fear-mongering in regard to Social Media. Thank you Ana!

This is the first teens-and-social-media book that I have read since aging out of the demographic that it concerns, and it was interesting to learn more about how shifts in culture and technology that postdate my middle and high school years are affecting Generation Z. This author explains the lingo and culture of teenage social media use without judgment towards adults or youth, and is candid about the dangers of technology without making fear-based arguments for change. Overall, this book is h ...more

Although this book (Homayoun's third on teens and organization) is targeted at parents/educators it also offers usef

This book starts with several chapters providing info and history on the topic before getting to application. I appreciated how it had exercises for adults and teens. It also had tips for school and home.

It's a little dry and academic. More likely for educators and professionals than for parents. Very helpful.

This book should be required reading for parents as their kids become aware of and start using social media. Instead of just saying no, Ana Homayoun shows the positives and negatives of social media use by kids. There are great suggestions for both limiting and allowing social media use according to the age and ability of your child. This book also has outstanding recommendations for how to improve productivity in kids (and I'm using some of these tools as well). Great book.
