The Community Speaker Series. Devorah Heitner- Growing Up In Public: Coming of Age in a Digital World - Oct. 18
10/1/2023 12:12 am
Presented by The Community Speaker Series, D181 and D 86
Devorah Heitner. Growing Up In Public: Coming of Age in a Digital World
Wednesday, October 18, 2023
9:30am – 11:00am, 7:00pm - 8:30pm
In Person at The Community House
If you’ve ever said, “I’m so glad my teenage years weren’t shared for the world to see,” this talk is for you! With social media and constant connection, the boundaries of privacy for children are stretched thin. Heitner shows parents how to help tweens and teens navigate boundaries, identity, privacy, and reputation in their digital world.
Growing Up in Public empowers parents to cut through the overwhelm to connect with their kids, recognize how to support them, and help them figure out who they are when everyone is watching.
