    1. There was a time – in the glorious and gilded days when I was a child – when we picked up our rooms and wore bow ties to school. I knew what a tough day mom had so I always offered to clear the table. I said ‘Yes, Ma’am’ and ‘No Sir’. And imagine my shock when, on my wedding night, I learned that girls and boys look different without underwear? Yes. This is preposterous and silly. But there is a sense of urgency in Victoria Dunckley’s Reset Your Child’s Brain that harkens back [...]

    2. Absolutely love this book. It literally changed my family's life - for the better. We were having so many problems with one of my children's behavior. But after implementing this program, I have my sweet boy back again.

    3. Good book, a bit too long but it does list loads of research, action plans, and practical tips. We are trying the "fast" to see if it helps our easily excitable and distractable kid. A lot of this is common sense, as we grew up without smartphones, tablets, wifi, and laptops. We noticed a lot of the symptoms in ourselves too.

    4. It was eye-opening. I enjoyed it very much and it made me much more aware of my own consumption of screen time and the effects it has on me. Also, the book was well written which made it an easy read.

    5. Excellent book for understanding how screens and electronics affect children's brains and offers a program to 'reset' the brain. Not easy in today's culture. I wish all teachers, educators, adminstrators and policy makers read this book and we'd have some changes on the national scale. All the computer time for kids in school is so bad for them!

    6. Helpful. I agree with every word. No screen time. But how do we get around it when schools rely on ipads for the delivery of school work? The best I can do is limit the about as much as possible.

    7. I'm really conflicted on what to rank this. Lots of good information but it seemed to be repeated until it felt like we were being hit over the head with it. I'm probably the ideal audience for this book since I went into reading it believing that screen time is harmful to our children but I found the author's approach to be off-putting and over the top.

    8. Very interesting read. Page 110, benefits of removing screens. Pg 112, how this effects right brain and left brain. Pg 114 changes in children within days weeks and months of "screen liberation". Pg 120 changes in families. Chapter 5 Getting ready for the "screen fast". Chapter 10 House rules and protective practises. Pg 247, advocating smaller screens and using fx justgetflux, adding warmth to screens. Pg 268 exposure to EMF ( electromagnetic fields) and WiFi.

    9. This book is a game changer! I wish I had read it years ago. The changes I have seen in my children because of the electronic fast are dramatic. It is worth reading despite its redundancy, and an electronic fast is free and worth a try.

    10. After reading an article online written by Dr. Dunckley about electronic screens and their negative effects on the brain, I was deeply skeptical, because the references for her claims were all correlational studies and she was making causal assumptions. What made me want to dig into the issue more deeply, however, was the fact that anecdotally with one of my own children I have noticed a correlation between the amount of time spent gaming or watching shows and mood/behavior, coupled with the fac [...]

    11. If you are human and if you own a screen device, then you should read this book. If you are a parent you should OWN THIS BOOK! It's less than $8 on amazon! I am making my two oldest children read section 1. Everything beyond section 1, is basically just minutia on how to implement the electronic-fast, and she does have experiences with trouble shooting there, but it's a simple enough premise. The author does belabor certain other points and the book is overly long. Really the message is simple a [...]

    12. Seldom does a book come along that is so comprehensive in terms of the brain science and so thorough in its practical applications. The last book I read that moved me to tell EVERYONE I know about it was Jane Healy's Endangered Minds: Why Children Don't Think And What We Can Do About It. Rest Your Child's Brain is such a book--one that maybe comes along every decade or so if we are lucky.Dr. Dunckley writes clearly about highly specialized brain functions and structures and how they are impacted [...]

    13. I especially liked Dunckley's explanation of the physiological effects of screens on children and why video games and any kind of hand held screen has a bigger impact than old-school TV watching. I also appreciated her instructions for the 3 week "fast." We are trying the fast with our eight year old son and are having great results. He was spending way too much time playing video games and watching his iPad and in the 10 days since it has been gone, things have been so much better! He has fewer [...]

    14. As a parent, I've used screens as a babysitter, distraction while feeding fussy toddlers, for educational purposes and entertainment. The book was eye-opening in its highlighting of the link between behavioral problems and screen use. Although at times, it feels like the author over-attributes the cause to screens, the fact remains that screen exposure adversely affects the development of the frontal lobe of the brain that controls executive functions, impulse control among other things that are [...]

    15. I can't recommend this book enough. It confirmed many things that I knew intuitively. My only complaint is that I would have liked a chapter on how these issues impact children and teens who haven't been diagnosed with learning disabilities etc. , but would still benefit from the advice given in the book.I am grateful to learn that use of any handheld device should be limited, even if it's "good" content. We were considering buying a laptop because our computer is 15 years old. Thanks to this bo [...]

    16. This book is a great resource for families who are fighting with screen time. It lays out the possible effects screen time is having on your child's brain, a 3 week screen fast plan, and follow-up after completing the fast. I found it highly informative and helpful. And while we completed only 1 week of the fast, we were able to identify sources of some behavior problems and take steps to eliminate them. I highly recommend this book to improve your family's screen time.

    17. An absolute must read for our age. This book highlights in detail the damage that many common electronic devices do to both our and our children's brains.Just because technology is new, flashy, and looks pretty doesn't mean it is good. Time will only tell the depth of the impact this is having on our society as a whole.

    18. The first two chapters were fascinating, and the plans for doing a 'reset' or cutting back screen time are quite detailed. Overall it felt a little too long and got repetitive to the point that I began skimming, but still a really good read. The reference list is extensive and the book is clearly thoroughly researched.

    19. This was fascinating. The author is well-researched and has lots of experience backing up what she writes about. I'm an easy sell on the topic, but I think even a skeptic would find something valuable in it.

    20. I am ever so glad to have read this book. The reset had quite an impact on my boys. I am very grateful we were able to reset and go back to 30 minutes of time as a privilege they can earn. 😊

    21. An important work that dares to question the safety in terms of mental health of all the screen time children have.

    22. Great book with thorough research. We just started our tech fast 6 days ago and are anxious to see what kind of results we'll have with our 5 children.

    23. A little bit descriptive but an eye-opening book.Its a vital reading for modern day parenting.

    24. Good ideas, questionable scienceThis book had some good ideas for reducing screen usage in children. My family did the reset she suggested and I saw many positive changes in my children and in our family in general (more interactions, more fun family time, more communication). I agree with the author that too much screen time can be harmful. I've seen the negative impact I my own children. Many of the assertions in the book, however, just weren't backed up by real peer-reviewed research. I think [...]

    25. Interesting ideas. We look forward to trying her ideas to see how they might help behavior. Not sure I buy her ideas of the dangers of WiFi.

    26. I picked this book up on accident because I somehow missed the last few words and would have never willingly chosen a book that suggested giving up screens! As it sat on my table before I returned it, I was intrigued enough to start.She has anecdote after anecdote of clients who's lives were changed by giving up handheld screen time. Bipolar reversed, cancer cured, etc (that's a bit of hyperbole, but honestly not much). To me, her most successful arguments were in the reduction of sleep due to b [...]
