HUGO face aux écrans : a family tale to learn how to manage screens

The book proposes a playful and adapted methodology. Page after page, the child becomes aware of the dangers of overexposure to screens and can modify his or her behavior through small concrete exercises. Advice for parents is also provided for each of the topics covered.
