Dr. Kristy Goodwin's
Where empowered parents and carers find peace of mind in the digital age.
Do you worry the impact screen time
is having on your kids & teens?
Do you feel guilty everytime you hand over the iPad so you can get a few things done around the house or meet a girlfriend at a cafe for a coffee?
Does it drive you mad that your son would rather play Fortnite than build a fort with the neighbour’s kids?
Do you fret about how much time your teen spends with social media?
Are you so wary of technology that you enforce a strict no-devices policy?
Do you avoid people and places where your child will have access to screens and you’re starting to feel a little socially isolated?
Doing things the “right” way is tougher than we ever imagined.
We’re constantly bombarded with conflicting and confusing information. Well-meaning family and friends heap their opinions on us. The media often reports the negative stories about kids and screens. Even our own childhood experiences of ‘playing outside for hours’ all combine to keep us confused, overwhelmed and second-guessing ourselves when it comes to managing our kids’ and teens’ screen-time.
Technology isn’t going away. It’s such a huge part of our lives that it can be difficult to know where to start.
We know that too much can be harmful to a child’s or adolescent’s development, but how much is too much? We also know that screens can be a helpful learning aid in a child’s education, but where’s the line?

As a mum ...
I know how hard it is to deal with techno tantrums - yep, my kids have ‘em too - fun aren’t they?!
As a researcher and digital wellbeing expert…
I help parents ditch the techno-guilt and raise healthy, happy kids and teens who thrive online and offline.
I love to translate the latest science and research about children’s and teens’ development, health and technology and turn it into practical and digestible information for parents who want peace of mind about parenting in the digital age - without having to ban the iPad or phone, or unplug the TV.
Let me arm you with the facts, not fears, about what children and teens really need to thrive in a screen-saturated world.
Take a look around...
And if we haven’t met yet...
I’m Dr Kristy Goodwin, one of Australia’s leading digital health and wellbeing experts, a speaker, researcher, author and (most importantly) a mum who personally understands the frustrations of dealing with techno-tantrums and fretting about screen-time and our kids’ safety.
I help parents and carers find healthy and helpful ways to raise kids and teens in the digital age, without the guilt, grief or guesswork.
I’m on a mission to disseminate the facts and dismantle the fears about children’s and teen’s use of technology.
I’ve spoken to parents, students, educators, health professionals, employees and executives at childcare centres, primary and secondary schools, conferences, corporate events and workplaces throughout Australia and Asia.
I’m often called on by the media for my expert opinion and to decipher the latest digital dilemmas facing modern parents.
Let me clear up the concerns and confusion about screen-time so you can finally feel confident and in control of your family’s well-being in the digital age.
Raising kids and teens in the digital age does NOT mean…
- you have to turn off your wifi and ban all devices
- you have to feel guilty every time you hand your child your phone
- you've failed as a parent if your kid begs, bribes or tackles you for the iPad
Raising kids and teens in the digital age does mean…
- getting informed and empowering ourselves with the right information so we can keep our kids safe from predators, pornography and peers (yep, cyberbullying amongst peers is very prevalent even from a young age)
- focusing on the things we can do as parents to make this easier for our kids (heck, most of us accept that our kids will inherit a digital world, so we know digital amputation isn’t a solution)
- being kind to ourselves and realistic about how hard this parenting gig is in our fast-paced modern world but knowing that simple solutions are available
I’ll show you how easy it is to manage your child’s and teen’s digital world by providing you with simple research-based solutions that won’t damage their development.

Dr Kristy Goodwin was the guest speaker for the Playgroup NSW 2015 AGM. She provided a rapt audience of our members (mostly parents of children from 0-5) with strategies for ensuring that popular technologies are used in developmentally appropriate and healthy ways with young children.
The feedback from everyone who attended was very positive and they were engaged and found Kristy to be one of the most straight forward and helpful speakers in this area. We would certainly recommend her to other organisations.

All parents should have Dr Kristy on speed-dial – if they only knew how to use their phone.
Kids and tech use is the great unknown for modern parents. Dr Kristy has a great ability to demystify, interpret and cut through the hype. We were so lucky to have her as our resident expert for Nick Jr. Parents.

An investment that pays for itself
A once-off membership fee (paid annually) that gives you full access to an entire library of research, resources and practical strategies to help you tackle the techno wars at your place -- and for less than it costs to purchase the materials separately and without having to attend an in-person event.
And if this content helps you dissolve just *some* of the digital dramas you’ve been facing with your child, it’s money well spent.
But in all likelihood, what you'll get in the Switched on Parents’ Portal will set you up for success throughout their whole childhood knowing the real reasons behind the problems, the best ways to solve them, and the chance to ask an expert all your most burning questions and get ongoing, tailored support.
So making this relatively small investment now will ultimately pay untold dividends on your family’s long term health and wellbeing.
