St Thomas Catholic Primary School, Willoughby PROUDLY PRESENTS:
Raising Your Child in a Digital World
St Thomas Catholic Primary School, Willoughby proudly presents a webinar with Dr Kristy Goodwin.
This webinar will help confused and concerned parents navigate the digital world with their children, without suggesting that they ban devices. Dr Kristy will arm parents with research-based yet realistic advice to help parents feel confident about how they can best support their child's physical health, mental wellbeing and learning as they grow up in a digital world.
Kristy will explore:
/// Why children find the online world captivating and how to manage their screen time so it doesn’t end in ‘scream time’ (there’s science to explain their techno-tantrums);
// A simple (& realistic) formula to determine healthy SCREEN TIME limits for children based on their BASIC NEEDS;
// Why parents need to be the PILOT of the DIGITAL PLANE and the 3Bs that will allow them to be the pilot;
// Why focusing on HOW MUCH time they spend online is NOT the most important question and the 5 essential BOUNDARIES they must establish to ensure their child’s time online supports their PHYSICAL HEALTH and MENTAL WELLBEING;
// How to determine when their child is ready for a phone, social media account or gaming console (and how to deal with their CONSTANT DIGITAL REQUESTS);
// Why DIGITAL DISCONNECTION is critical for your child.
All attendees will receive an eBook summary with key information, links and resources. Register and if you can’t attend live, we’ll send you a link to access the replay.
