Dealing with the Digital Hangover
Your kids/teens have probably just transitioned back to school and you'll soon be facing school holidays. You don't want their tech habits to slip, but you've recently endured the dreaded 'digital hangover' and don't want to revert to bad habits, or deal with constant techno-tantrums these holidays and beyond.
Let me help you tame your kids' and teens' tech habits, without reverting to phone bans or confiscating gaming consoles. Learn realistic ways to ensure that screen time doesn't end in scream time.
In this express webinar we'll explore:
// the reasons kids and teens find the online world so appealing (I'll dispel the myth that they're 'addicted' to technology);
// simple (science-backed, mum-tested) strategies to manage techno-tantrums and digitally-disconnect kids without meltdowns;
// red flags for problematic digital behaviours (it's way more than how much time they spend online); and
// practical tips to adopt healthy and sustainable digital habits these school holidays (so you're not back to square-one when school returns next term).
A PDF summary sheet and video replay is available for everyone who registers.
If you're a member of the Switched on Parents' Portal please don't register as the replay and resources will be added to the portal after the webinar.
Anonymously submit any questions about the topics covered in this webinar & I'll answer them in the webinar.
