Dr. Devorah. Heitner, digital media expert and author, speaks to parents at Saturday Symposium March 18.
Dr. Heitner shared advice from her book Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World and her just published Growing Up in Public. Visit Dr. Heitner's blog to learn more about how to "mentor, not monitor" your children as they venture into the world of texting and social media.
In addition to Dr. Heitner's keynote address, there was a yoga demonstration, a workshop on how to get a grip when emotions flood the brain, and an expo with parenting information from carseats to college.
