Raising Your Child in a Digital World
October 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$35
Dr Kristy Goodwin, a digital parenting educator, researcher and author (& mum who also deals with her kids’ techno-tantrums), translates the latest research about how technology is shaping childhood. Dr Kristy helps confused and concerned parents make informed decisions about how to best manage screen-time at home (so that it doesn’t always end in scream time)… and no she won’t suggest that you ban the iPad, or unplug the TV! Parents will understand the latest risks to kids’ online safety, as well as the health, learning and development implications of young kids (5-12 years) using digital devices.
Dr Kristy will explain how technology is impacting kids’ sleep, social, language, play, physical skills and their vision, hearing and posture. Parents will be armed with practical strategies and essential information about how to best raise kids in a digital world and will be equipped with practical ideas about how to get the most out of their child’s screen-time (because digital amputation isn’t the solution).
