Plugged-In Childhoods

(for parents of 2-5 year olds)

In this online video seminar, one of Australia’s leading digital parenting educators (and Mum who experiences her kids’ techno-tantrums from time to time), Dr Kristy Goodwin shares a video recording of her signature parenting talk Raising Your Child in a Digital World (for confused and concerned parents of 2-5 year olds).

In this video seminar Dr Kristy arms parents and carers with essential information about how technology is shaping childhood and practical tips about how to navigate young children’s digital world, without the guilt and guesswork (no, Kristy won’t tell you to ban the iPad, or unplug the TV).

Plugged-in 2-5

She explores how technology can potentially impact young kids’ sleep, social, language, play, physical skills and their vision, hearing and posture. Dr Kristy helps worried and confused parents make informed decisions about how to best manage screen-time at home (so that it doesn’t always end in scream time). She equips parents with simple (& realistic) strategies to ensure that technology doesn’t harm their health or development, so you can hand over the iPad, or turn on the TV and not have to worry. This video seminar helps parents and carers feel confident and assured navigating their child’s digital world and is also suitable for early childhood educators wanting to give parents evidence-based advice.


In this video seminar, you’ll learn:

// a simple formula to calculate healthy screen-time limits

// why your child throws techno-tantrums (there’s a scientific explanation that accounts for your child’s terrible behaviour when you take away technology!)

// simple strategies to manage screen-time (so it doesn’t end in tears and tantrums)

// the current risks to young children’s online safety (including paedophiles, pornography, inappropriate content on You Tube)

// what to look for in quality, educational apps and TV shows for toddlers and pre-schoolers (no, I won’t suggest you ban the iPad)

// where and when screens should be avoided with little ones

// why we should avoid using screen-time as a reward or punishment tool (even though that may seem crazy!)

// how you can help you child establish healthy and helpful habits with technology so that their physical health, learning and development isn’t compromised (so you can finally stop fretting about screen-time and ditch your ‘techno-guilt’)

// simple strategies to protect your child’s vision, hearing, posture when using screens
