"You can't help but think 30 Day Blackout will be a staple in child development for decades to come. Our kids are in crisis like we've never seen. I only wish I'd had this book when raising my own child." - Angela Howell, National Speaker and Bestselling Author of Finding the Gift: Daily Meditations for Mindfulness
It’s no secret that devices are designed to be addictive. If your kids spend more time looking at screens than making eye contact, they’re not alone; they’re in the majority. Screens have taken the place of connecting person-to-person, in real time. Countless children are experiencing depression, anxiety, listlessness, suicidal thoughts, aggression, hyperactivity — things that threaten to steal the memories and experiences of a happy, joy-filled childhood. In 30 Day Blackout, Stacy Jagger, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S), shares how she has helped hundreds of families turn off technology and turn on relationship. 30 Day Blackout is your guide to helping your kids unplug from virtual reality and plug in to actual reality.

“Amazing! Stacy Jagger has written the definitive book about how to establish TRUE connection in a virtually connected world. She has created a road map integrating perspectives from child development, neuroscience, mental health, and attachment. Her tried and true guide walks you thru how to set loving, firm limits in an increasingly boundary-less technology driven world. By allowing the brain and body to find its own internal and external rhythm without the distraction and pinging of electronics, the nervous system has the opportunity to re-tune and regulate. Stacy knows how to help children and families find their way to deeper more meaningful connections. The long term benefit of resetting our relationship with technology is that we instill a sense of self-worth within our children that is inspired thru the kinds of experiences that ignite hope, creativity and dreams. What a gift.”

”A child with an internet device in his or her hands is no longer just a child. They are something different and that is the problem! Stacy Jagger is a masterful storyteller and a much sought after therapist with a tested solution to this societal dilemma. In this book, she beautifully weaves together a tapestry of renewal by drawing together the threads of science and proven change techniques honed through years of helping real families drowning in the digital flood. My advice as a psychologist is to pick up this book and don’t put it down until you have mastered these solutions because, if you don’t, the digital world will master you, and your child! This manual is CPR for children in the digital age!”

“As a work-from-home parent of five who has actually used Stacy’s Blackout system, I recommend this book with my whole heart. It’s given our family something back we’d been too distracted to realize we were losing–real, tangible relationships with each other.”

Inspiring and hopeful...
“In 30 Day Blackout, Stacy Jagger offers a practical solution for one of the most dangerous problems our families are facing today. We all see and feel the damage of screen addiction. We understand the problem. Through her writing and speaking, Stacy expertly delivers a workable plan of action to reclaim our connection – our families – and communities. I found myself drawn in by her exceptional storytelling, and I respected her ability to break down complicated science and stats into easy to understand concepts we all should apply. Stacy Jagger is a master of this information. And her delivery is as inspiring and hopeful as the problem is timely and sobering.”
