Raising Your Child in a Digital World
May 1 @ 7:00 pm
Dr Kristy Goodwin, a digital parenting educator, author and researcher (& mum who also deals with
her kids’ techno-tantrums), translates the latest research about how technology is shaping childhood
into essential information for confused and concerned parents. Dr Kristy helps 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 (including current cyber-safety threats, pornography exposure,
introduction of phones and social media), as well as the health, learning and development implications
of young kids (5-12 years) growing up in a world of screens.
Kristy will share her simple formula to determine healthy screen-time limits and will arm parents with a host of strategies and ideas to help kids develop healthy technology habits. Dr Kristy will explain how technology is impacting kids’ learning, sleep, social, language, play, physical skills and their vision, hearing and posture and will arm parents with practical strategies about how to best raise kids in a digital world. Parents will learn how to get the most out of their child’s screen-time so they can finally ditch the guilt and guesswork.
