Managing Your Childs Screen-Time with Dr Devorah Heitner PhD

My guest today on Digital Families is Dr Devorah Heitner PhD who is is the author of  the book “Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World” . Dr Heitner has a Ph.D. in Media/Technology and Society from Northwestern University, and is also the founder of ‘Raising Digital Natives”

Devorah Heitner is someone I have been following online for quite a few years, I often share advice from her on to my own social media followers. I love her down to earth advice for parents about mentoring not monitoring our children online. She joins us today from her home in Chicago in the U.S

We also discuss how to manage screen time especially during this time of Covid19 when the screen maybe the only outlet for your child socially.
