The landscape is different now, and the rules are changing rapidly. Our kids need help, even if they think they don’t. Even if you think they don’t. It’s up to us as parents (and teachers) to ensure that we are helping our kids develop the skills they need to thrive in their Digital World.
Simply put, you have to learn in order to teach. You can’t disconnect and say, “I just don’t get this.” This is much bigger than “Internet Safety.”
Your kids are relying on you to be their guides into this new world.

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.
