Growing Up Social: Raising Relational Kids in a Screen-Driven World

Free sample

Is technology drawing your family together or driving it apart?

In this digital age, children are spending more and more time interacting with a screen and less time playing outside, reading a book, or interacting with a parent. While technology can benefit us, it can also erode a sense of togetherness and hinder a child’s emotional and social development.

In Growing Up Social, Gary Chapman and Arlene Pellicane will empower you with the tools you need to make positive changes . . . starting today. Through stories, wit, and wisdom, you’ll discover how to take back your home from an overdependence on screens. Plus, you’ll learn to teach the five A+ skills that every child needs to master: affection, appreciation, anger management, apology, and attention.

Learn how to:

  • Replace mindless screen time with meaningful family time
  • Establish simple boundaries that make a huge difference
  • Discover what's working for families that have become screen savvy
  • Equip your child to be relationally rich in a digital world
  • Learn healthy ways to occupy your child while you get things done

Now is the time to equip your child with a healthy involvement with screens and an even healthier involvement with others.

El reconocido escritor y consejero matrimonial, Gary Chapman, que lleva mas de 35 anos aconsejando a parejas, cree que el divorcio es el resultado de la falta de preparacion para el matrimonio y de la incapacidad para aprender a trabajar juntos como companeros de equipo intimos. Este libro practico esta lleno de sabiduria y de consejos para poder disfrutar de un matrimonio afectuoso, en el que ambos se apoyan y resultan beneficiados. Es el tipo de informacion que al mismo Gary le hubiera gustado tener antes de casarse. Las parejas que estan saliendo o que estan prometidas disfrutaran de las secciones "Hablemos de ello," de los numerosos recursos y de un apendice intelectualmente estimulante ademas de un revelador ejercicio de aprendizaje. Entendiendo y equilibrando los cinco aspectos claves de la vida, las parejas que estan saliendo pueden experimentar una relacion sana.

Best-selling author and marriage counselor, Gary Chapman, with more than 35 years of counseling couples, believes that divorce is the lack of preparation for marriage and the failure to learn the skills of working together as intimate teammates. This practical book is packed with wisdom and tips to develop a loving, supportive, and mutually beneficial marriage. It's the type of information Gary himself wished he had before he got married. Dating or engaged couples will enjoy the "Talking It Over" sections, extensive resources, a thought-provoking appendix, plus a revealing learning exercise! By understanding and balancing the five key aspects of life, dating couples can experience a healthy dating relationship.

Gary Chapman and Rick Osborne help children learn about the importance of love in this wonderfully imaginative and classically illustrated children’s hardcover book featuring four-color illustrations (with hidden details!) by Wilson Williams, Jr., and based on Gary’s bestselling The 5 Love Languages. Each child in this entertaining and playful story learns that they have a primary love language that when "spoken" by others, makes them feel loved. As the five children in the story interact with Mr. Chapman and the unique animals at his special zoo/museum/theme park/birthday party palace, they come to understand their own love language! Readers, especially children ages 5–8, are sure to recognize their own love language as the story develops, and at the end of the book is a fun quiz that will help parents and children identify their own love language.

The cast of child characters in this whimsical story include: 

Penny, Peyton's twin sister, who receives love best when others spend quality time with her. Mr. Chapman introduces Penny to Horace, a Ragdoll Cat who just wants to be with Penny. Jayla, one of Penny's close friends, is always saying nice things about people. Her love language is words of affirmation. Jayla's perfect pet pal is Pamela, an African Grey Parrot, who repeats the nice things Jayla says about others. Kevin, one of Peyton's close friends, enjoys giving things to people. So does his special pet Chipo, a Capuchin Monkey! Sofia loves to pet the animals, and to show her love for others with special hugs. Physical touch is Sofia's love language. Snuggles
