Dr Kristy Goodwin helps parents and professionals raise thriving teens in a digital world. She equips concerned parents with critical information about the current cyber risks, the positive potential of technology and practical strategies for navigating the online world with adolescents (that don’t involve phone bans). She provides parents with essential information about how technology is shaping teens’ health, learning and wellbeing. In this parent seminar, Dr Kristy will share practical tips about how to prevent screens from adversely impacting teens’ sleep, physical, social and emotional health. She will talk about pornography, cybersafety, online gaming, cyber-bullying, social media (and its impact on adolescent mental health), and addiction concerns, and help parents understand what they can do to help their teen develop healthy technology habits. She will also provide opportunities for parents to ask about their ‘digital dilemmas’.
