RTV was honored to have bestselling author Tom Kersting lead our Winter Book Discussion as we reviewed his book, DISCONNECTED: How to Reconnect Our Digitally Distracted Kids. Tom, a licensed psychotherapist and family counselor, is one of the most sought-after experts in the field of mental health, parenting in the digital age, and over-device use. He has been a contributing expert for Fox News, Today Show, Good Morning America and has recently started a podcast series, Reconnected Parent Podcast. Check out his recent podcast "Book Discussion and Transformation Tools with Raising the Vibe": https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/book-discussion-transformation-tools-raising-vibe/id1489239872?i=1000463938499
Tom's newest book, Disconnected: How to Protect Your Kids from the Harmful Effects of Device Dependency, will be released in August but can be pre-ordered on Amazon. The growing mental health crisis, especially in our children, can be connected to the effects of too much screen time on neuroplasticity. This is a very important book that should be read by all!
