Dr. Devorah Heitner, author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World, was our keynote speaker for the March 18 Parent University Saturday Symposium.
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.

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.
Parents also toured the new Oceanside High School Wellness Center.
