Raising Your Child in a Digital World - Essential tips from my book


Need some guidance when it comes to raising little ones in this busy digital world?

You’re not the only one.

I’m Dr. Kristy (Goodwin) - researcher, speaker, author, and mum - and not only do I GET it, I’ve dedicated my entire career to helping my fellow parents with this exact digital dilemma.

As a technology + development expert, I’ve spent over 14 years with my nose in the books studying how young minds process all the stimulation they’re exposed to today in this digital world they’ve inherited.

I’m also a mum who deals with techno tantrums and worries about the health effects of screen time.

I’m on a serious mission to help parents ditch their techno guilt and raise happy, healthy kids.

It’s totally possible - and you don’t have to live without WiFi to make it happen.


I love sharing what I’ve learned not just online, but in person throughout Australia in preschools, long daycare centres, primary and secondary schools, local councils, community, church, health and sporting groups and in corporations (as part of their wellness programs).

I deliver keynote addresses at parent and educator conferences, at children’s media developers’ events and health professionals’ conferences.

Dr Kristy Goodwin was the guest speaker for the Playgroup NSW 2015 AGM. She provided a rapt audience of our members (mostly parents of children from 0-5) with strategies for ensuring that popular technologies are used in developmentally appropriate and healthy ways with young children.

The feedback from everyone who attended was very positive and they were engaged and found Kristy to be one of the most straight forward and helpful speakers in this area. We would certainly recommend her to other organisations.

All parents should have Dr Kristy on speed-dial – if they only knew how to use their phone.

 Kids and tech use is the great unknown for modern parents. Dr Kristy has a great ability to demystify, interpret and cut through the hype. We were so lucky to have her as our resident expert for Nick Jr. Parents.
