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

Need an expert or a quote for a story you’re running about young children growing up a digital world?

I can help you.

I’m often called on by the media for my insight and practical tips about what young children need to thrive in a digital world.

I’ve been featured in:


 I’m available for interview or comment in the media on the following topics:

//  Young children’s and adolescents' (0-16 years) use of technology

//  Screen time for young children (how much is healthy vs harmful, current guidelines)

//  Young children and technology addiction

//  Parents’ digital dilemmas (addressing issues such as sharing images of kids online, techno-guilt, techno-shame, “sharenting”, “brexting”, when to introduce social media to kids)

//  Health, wellbeing and developmental implications associated with young children experiencing “digitalised childhoods” (for example, health concerns associated with vision, posture and hearing)

//  Educational use of technology with young children

//  What today’s young children really need to thrive in an online and offline world

// Current online risks facing kids and adolescents

//  Why we need to balance kids’ ‘screen time’ with ‘green time’.
