"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Review

Acknowledging the impossibility of fully sheltering children from the world of digital media, Heitner provides guidance for parents navigating this ever-changing landscape. She covers common concerns about children of different ages, from preschool to young adult, and even looks at how the digital world influences adults. She pairs examples from what she has found working with families in her consulting firm with research in the field, such as into the ways kids use social media. This book provides useful advice for the parents of children of all ages and will serve well as a guide to help the different generations communicate, in person or online. (Publisher's Weekly)


When you hand your child their first phone, you also need to support them with guidance about apps, games, group texts, sexting, porn, predators, geotagging and more. If that sounds overwhelming, get your hands on Devorah Heitner's Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in their Digital World. It's a reassuring, tech-positive book full of practical advice for parents to help kids manage their digital lives. (Dr. Laura Markham, AHA Parenting, Bestselling Author of Peaceful Parent, Happy Kid)
   
"Heitner has done something significant and brave in taking on this wave of technology that so many of us assume we have no control over. We do have control, and we all have a lot to learn in this realm."(Mayim Bialik, Actor, Neuroscientist, Founder of GrokNation)

"For all parents who feel like they can't keep up with today's technology, Devorah Heitner has come to the rescue. Screenwise doesn't judge or preach. It is full of empathy and insight, providing gems of guidance
based on years of deep research and real talk with real kids. A pleasure to
read."--Lisa Guernsey, director, Learning Technologies Project New America and; author of Tap, Click, Read and Screen Time


"Find your way from 'screenworried' to 'screenwise.' It's time to get over
your techno-guilt and become a more competent and confident media
mentor--an enthusiastic tour guide and mindful role model--for your
child in the digital age."--Chip Donohue, PhD, director, Technology in Early Childhood (TEC) Center at Erikson Institute

"A must-read for twenty-first century parents!  Empowered by Dr. Heitner's timely book, I feel infinitely more prepared to guide my son and daughter through the advantages and perils of modern-day connectedness. Issues like trust, relationships, security, and
balance are handled deftly by an expert who clearly knows the territory
and shares her knowledge in a relatable way. Every modern-day parent
should read this book. Highly recommended."
--Mary O'Donohue, author of When You Say "Thank You," Mean It: And 11
Other Lessons for Instilling Lifelong Values In Your Children


"Devorah has tackled the challenging, modern issue of raising kids in
today's digital world head-on. Screenwise gives practical ideas and advice
for parents struggling with this issue and really enables them to turn what
could be a problem into an opportunity. Screenwise will help
not only the parents in our district, but also the teachers when it comes
to ideas and strategies for truly helping kids thrive in their digital world."
--Carl Hooker, Director of Innovation, Eanes ISD, Author of the Mobile Learning Mindset book series

 "Grounded in the latest research, it will help parents develop their
resourcefulness in navigating what can seem like a worrying new world."
---Sonia Livingstone, author of The Class: Living and Learning in the Digital Age)


"The book is largely practical advice that focuses as much on parent-child relationships as it does on technology... She walks through numerous dangers that children can encounter -- not just pornography, but privacy, data-slurping, and plagiarism -- and provides common-sense suggestions for dealing with the consequences."― Wendy M Grossman, ZDNet UK Book Reviews

From the Author

Parenting new texters, gamers and social media users can be overwhelming. I wrote Screenwise to support parents and educators who are looking for answers about mentoring and supporting their kids in the digital age.
