Free Program on Parenting Your Plugged-in Teen

Parents invited to attend March 11 program in Buffalo Grove.

Do you wonder what teens are really doing with the tablets and smartphones that seem surgically attached? 

The Community Parent Network invites all interested parents to hear Dr. Devorah Heitner, Lake Forest College professor of media studies, discuss the writing and research on teens' use of technology.

This free program for parents, which will begin at 7 p.m. March 11 at Twin Groves Middle School, will focus on topics relevant to youths 12 and up.

An informed and humorous speaker with unique, in-depth understanding of her topic, Heitner will address the world of the digital native – kids today – including privacy, friending, popular apps and their purpose, creative ways to use technology to bring families together, and much more.

This program is sponsored by the Stevenson High School Foundation, the Community Parent Network, District 125 PPA, District 103 PTO, District 103 Learning Fund Foundation, District 96 Foundation, District 102, District 76, and District 73 PTO.

Great post by Local Voice contributor Lisa Barr where she interviews Devorah Heitner by asking all the hard questions. Two weeks later the Deerfield Parent Network asks her to speak to a large parent group about kids and technology. Parents need to stay informed. http://vernonhills.patch.com/blog_posts/make-my-bed-uh-is-there-an-app-for-that Devorah Heitner will be in our area again in March thanks to the Stevenson Foundation Community Parent Network.
