Raising Boys in a Digital World
February 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Dr Kristy Goodwin, a digital parenting educator, researcher and author (& mum to two boys), translates the latest research about how boys’ technology habits are shaping their childhood and adolescence. Dr Kristy helps confused and concerned parents make informed decisions about how to best manage technology at home with their sons (so it doesn’t always end in tears and tantrums)… and no she won’t suggest that you ban the iPad, or gaming console. Kristy will arm parents with essential information about how gaming and pornography are influencing boys’ health, learning and development and how inappropriate technology habits can impact on their sleep, learning, attention spans and physical health and wellbeing. Dr Kristy will also talk about addiction and strategies to develop healthy technology habits with boys. Dr Kristy arms parents with simple strategies and ideas to confidently navigate the digital world with their sons. Dr Kristy will explain why boys often experience techno-tantrums and become agitated when they stop using screens (there’s a neuroscientific explanation for your son’s frustration) and effective strategies to ensure your son’s online safety…because digital abstinence isn’t a solution.
