“I absolutely love this book! If you have ever known a kid who has been, at times, a timewaster, this book is for you! I have known Jim Lyman for many years, and what I love about the content he creates, is just how practical it is. This book is no exception, it centers around a child’s real-life struggle between being present with his family and being glued to video games.” Amazon customer

Many parents still struggle with their kids’ screen time, whether it’s video games, social media, or even just YouTube. For some, it’s the new drug that could destroy families, but for others, it’s the new way to raise kids. Pastor James M. Lyman thinks the challenge is best met by cutting somewhere in the middle with his children’s book “Timothy McMaister.

Using clever rhymes and colorful cartoon illustrations, “Timothy McMaister” tells the story of Tim, a kid who only appears hyper and active when engaged in video games, watching online videos, or scrolling for memes. The sounds of tapping and thumb-mashing echo off the walls of his family’s house. And worst still, his siblings have started taking after his time-wasting behavior.

This leads to all sorts of problems as Tim’s obsessions make him forget about everything else that’s happening around him. But rather than being old-fashioned and heavy-handed with it, the story encourages both parents and children to have a more practical conversation about screen habits.

“Timothy McMaister” greatly reflects Lyman’s 35 years of experience working with children and their families. Even before writing the book, his community praised him for the engaging, thoughtful, and humorous content that he makes to foster meaningful conversations in families.

James Michael Lyman hopes that his contribution to the conversation around screen time will encourage a healthier approach to digital media consumption. “Timothy McMaister” is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
