“An enlightening look into the world of the newest, techiest generation, iKids is chock-full of useful tidbits to help parents prevent children from overloading on too many screens and too much technology. [This book is] an excellent guide forChristian parents who want to raise their children with the right values.” —Jean M. Twenge, author of Generation Me and coauthor of The Narcissism Epidemic

“Every parent in America needs a copy of this book. If I were a pastor or staff member of a church, I would make sure every parent and grandparent had this book, and I would organize teaching and small-group discussions around it. There is something to learn on every page—from information to perspective to practical tips.” —Reggie McNeal, author of Get Off Your Donkey: Help Somebody and Help Yourself

“This book is an amazing representation of the children who are entering into middle school. Miller provides a vocabulary to understand these children and their experiences, and he provides teachers, parents, pastors, Christian educators and other leaders in the church ways to give guidance for a deeper spiritual walk with God.” —Leigh Meekins, Christian educator and ordained deacon, The United Methodist Church

“I read iKids through the eyes of a grandparent. I am giving a copy to each of my children to help them practice proactive parenting in an age of techgear and digital media, and better understand their influence on the mental and social development of our grandchildren.” —Mike Slaughter, Senior Pastor of Ginghamsburg Church

“Miller’s unique navigation through the digital waters surrounding pre-teens and teenagers today is brilliant. As a pastor of a growing congregation and the father of two young children, this resource is essential. I highly recommend adding it to your collection.” —Olu Brown, pastor of Impact Church in Atlanta, Georgia, and author of Zero to 80
