Many parents don’t know where to start when it comes to mentoring their kids on social media, texting and gaming. 

I help people have important conversations with kids (and themselves) about communicating with empathy and wisdom in digital spaces. 

Raising Digital Natives is all about embracing the upsides of technology while navigating the challenges. Creating a compassionate, thoughtfully-connected world.

What People Are Saying About Raising Digital Natives 

Devorah has a clear, culturally-based perspective on the digital world in which our children (natives) live and how we as parents (immigrants) can best navigate this world with the most positive results for everyone involved. She combines humor, the latest research and practical takeaway points, all making for a very effective, thought-provoking presentation.

Martha Silberman, Deerfield Parent Network   


Devorah did an amazing job connecting with parents about raising digital natives. She had terrific ideas about how to set reasonable boundaries and weave technology into family life in healthy, thoughtful ways. Devorah is thinking deeply about these issues as a parent, teacher, and researcher. She can be a guide to all of us exploring this new frontier.
