Publisher's Summary

Screenwise offers a realistic and optimistic perspective on how to thoughtfully guide kids in the digital age.

Many parents feel that their kids are addicted, detached, or distracted because of their digital devices. Media expert Devorah Heitner, however, believes that technology offers huge potential to our children - if parents help them. Using the foundation of their own values and experiences, parents and educators can learn about the digital world to help set kids up for a lifetime of success in a world fueled by technology.

Screenwise is a guide to understanding more about what it is like for children to grow up with technology and to recognizing the special challenges - and advantages - that contemporary kids and teens experience thanks to this level of connection. In it, Heitner presents practical parenting hacks - quick ideas that you can implement today that will help you understand and relate to your digital native. The book will empower parents to recognize that the wisdom they have gained throughout their lives is a relevant and urgently needed supplement to their kids' digital savvy and help them develop skills for managing the new challenges of parenting.

Based on real-life stories from other parents and Heitner's wealth of knowledge on the subject, Screenwise teaches parents what they need to know in order to raise responsible digital citizens.

Good book! nice heartwarming story of courage.<br />

I really enjoyed the story. I only would have liked to see a little more climax and more story at the end. I was shocked when it was over. I expected a lot more to the story than where it ended.
