Books & Podcasts for Parenting During this Tech-Centric Time

I'm always a fan of a good podcast as we'll as a good book. That's why I was particularly struck with the latest email I got from Dr. Delaney Ruston, Screenagers documentary filmmaker and creator/blogger of the Screenagers Movie website.

Her latest post this week, Books and Podcasts List To Help With Parenting, lists some of both for parents of our tech-centric kids. 

Below are the names of each that she listed, along with a few additions of my own (listed below). To learn more about each title, check out Dr. Ruston's post, or the other links below. [She also includes focus questions with each of her posts.]

  • Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence--by Anna Lembke, MD
  • The Guide: Managing Douchebags, Recruiting Wingmen, and Attracting Who You Want--by Rosalind Wiseman    [Her Website Cultures of Dignity looks like an amazing resource--love their "What is Dignity" video on their site!]
  • Emotional Agility Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life--bySusan David, PhD
  • The recent episode of Freakonomics, The Economist’s Guide to Parenting: 10 Years Later (Oct 20, 2021)
