Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World 

Dr. Devorah Heitner, author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World will be presenting from Chicago!  Parents today worry that kids are addicted, detached, or distracted because of digital devices. At the same time, parents may be less conscious about how they are modeling their own relationship with technology.  Drawing from Screenwise, her popular guidebook for parents and from the latest research, Dr. Heitner will provide gems of guidance to help parents become confident digital media mentors to texters, gamers, and social media users from preschool to young adults.  She will also share advice for navigating issues concerning different access to screens across families.
