Baby, Unplugged: One Mother's Search for Balance, Reason, and Sanity in the Digital Age
There seems to be an app or device for nearly every aspect of parenting today, from monitoring your baby and entertaining your toddler to connecting with other parents for tips, tricks, and socializing. For all the parents of preschoolers or younger, here’s the simple truth: with very few exceptions, technology for kids under the age of five is basically worthless. The same goes for parent-targeted tech shilled out by Silicon Valley. If you want to raise a resilient, smart, successful human and minimize your parenting anxiety, shove your phone in the freezer and forget about it.

The mother of three young children, journalist Sophie Brickman interviewed experts, academics, doctors, and innovators for advice and insight about the effects of technology on child-rearing and parenting. In her first book, Baby, Unplugged: One Mother’s Search for Balance, Reason, and Sanity in the Digital Age, she weaves this in-depth research into a very personal, and often humorous, journey of becoming a parent alongside her tech-loving husband, offering an engaging and illuminating examination of our tech-saturated world.

Brickman will be in conversation with Joy Hurd, Head of School at Lake Forest Country Day School in Lake Forest, IL.

This event will be recorded and available later on the FAN website and our YouTube channel.
