We’ve got two great topics to go with your Thanksgiving feast this week: meditation, and being screenwise. First, we talk about some schools that have replaced detention with mindful meditation, and the amazing results they’ve been seeing. Then, we talk with Devorah Heitner, who wrote the book Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (And Survive) In Their Digital World. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
