Reset Your Child’s Brain: A Four-Week Plan to End Meltdowns, Raise Grades, and Boost Social Skills by Reversing the Effects of Electronic Screen-Time

Increasing numbers of parents grapple with children who are acting out without obvious reason. Revved up and irritable, many of these children are diagnosed with ADHD, bipolar illness, autism, or other disorders but don’t respond well to treatment. They are then medicated, often with poor results and unwanted side effects. Based on emerging scientific research and extensive clinical experience, integrative child psychiatrist Dr. Victoria Dunckley has pioneered a four-week program to treat the frequent underlying cause, Electronic Screen Syndrome (ESS).

Dr. Dunckley has found that everyday use of interactive screen devices — such as computers, video games, smartphones, and tablets — can easily overstimulate a child’s nervous system, triggering a variety of stubborn symptoms. In contrast, she’s discovered that a strict, extended electronic fast single-handedly improves mood, focus, sleep, and behavior, regardless of the child’s diagnosis. It also reduces the need for medication and renders other treatments more effective.

Offered now in this book, this simple intervention can produce a life-changing shift in brain function and help your child get back on track — all without cost or medication. While no one in today’s connected world can completely shun electronic stimuli, Dr. Dunckley provides hope for parents who feel that their child has been misdiagnosed or inappropriately medicated, by presenting an alternative explanation for their child’s difficulties and a concrete plan for treating them.

    Essential reading for every parent or teacher This book is a must for any parent or teacher concerned about children ‘glued’ to their smartphones or tablets and are permanently “wired and tired”. ‘Electronic Screen Syndrome’ is a real health issue. It is possible to get too much of a good thing. The blue light-at-night used in phones and tablets inhibits restorative sleep and can lead to addiction. Dunckley sets out a step-by-step plan to help parents (in cooperation with teachers) reset the child’s brain by doing a screen fast for…

    Screen use damages the young brain – a much better book than its title. Despite the clumsy and misleading title, this is a well written, thoroughly researched and thoughtful book. It seems to be based largely on the author’s practical experience as a clinical psychologist. The work is thoroughly and clearly referenced. On the core topic of the neurological and psychological effects of electronic screens on the developing brain, the book is lucid and persuasive. Just as valuable is the attention paid to the practical problem of how to tackle the affliction of…

    Save your child’s brain from the ‘digital drug’!! Can’t recommend this book highly enough! It should be compulsory reading for all parents…if you feel your child’s brain has become hijacked by electronic devices, please read this book and act quickly. My son who has high functioning autism seemed to live for his next screen ‘fix’ and, although implementing the electronic fast was challenging at first, a few weeks in I’m now seeing a calmer, happier more loving child emerge. In fact, he said to me yesterday, “I’m so glad I’m not addicted…
