Description :  Biti družaben ne pomeni le navezovati stike, klepetati ali nekaj skupaj ustvarjati, ampak izkazovati pozornost in sočutje do drugih z očesnim stikom in s pogovorom. Ker danes otroci veliko časa preživijo pred različnimi zasloni v svetu virtualnih odnosov, znanstveniki s področja nevrologije ugotavljajo, da se te sposobnosti in celo zainteresiranost za stike z ljudmi v resničnem svetu – iz oči v oči – manjšajo. Težava niso zasloni kot taki, ampak njihova pretirana uporaba.<br /><br /> V tej knjigi boste izvedeli:&#xa0;<br /> - zakaj pametni telefoni, televizorji, računalniki in tablice otroke tako privlačijo in kaj je pri tem problematično,<br /> - kako digitalni zasloni vplivajo na otroške možgane,<br /> - kako videoigre vplivajo na otrokovo izražanje jeze,<br /> - kako pomagati otrokom premagati plahost, da bodo znali navezovati stike v resničnem svetu,&#xa0;<br /> - kako otroka vzgajati za hvaležnost, sočutje, opravičevanje,<br /> - kaj lahko naredite, da otroku pomagate ohranjati pozornost, ko mu je to težko,<br /> - ustvarjalne ideje, s katerimi lahko zaposlite otroka brez uporabe zaslonov,<br /> - koristne nasvete za vas, da si boste vrnili svojo starševsko avtoriteto in boste otrokom zgled.&#xa0;<br /><br /> Nikoli ni prepozno, da bi spremenili vaše družinsko življenje!&#xa0;<br /><br /> <b><i>»Zasvojenost nikoli ne pride kot strela z jasnega, ampak se razvija. Če smo na odnose v svoji družini pozorni, opazimo, kdaj se je začela plaziti okoli nas, pa nas še ni ugriznila in nas tudi ne bo, saj se lahko z njo spopademo s pozornimi in predanimi odnosi. Naj vam knjiga pomaga verjeti, da ste za svoje otroke starši najboljši!«&#xa0;</i></b><br /><br /> <b>dr. Andreja Poljanec, spec. zakonske in družinske terapije</b>
