The "digital natives" grew up with screens of all sizes in their lives nearly all the time.  And keeping up can be daunting for parents, even frightening at times. 

Devorah Heitner has a Ph.D in Media/Technology and Society from Northwestern University, and is raising a child herself. She advises other parents on how to roll with the changes of the times... and how to set firm limits. 

Heitner's book is Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World

She joins us with research and how to apply it.
