Raising Digital Kids
Dr Kristy Goodwin delivers a practical parent seminar to help worried parents understand how digitalised childhoods and adolescence are impacting kids’ health, learning and development. Dr Kristy highlights the potential and the pitfalls associated with kids and teens using screens and arms parents with simple and realistic strategies about how to best manage technology at home (so screen-time doesn’t always end in ‘scream-time’). Understand why kids have techno-tantrums (& effective strategies to prevent these), how much screen-time is healthy and harmful, if it’s okay to use screens as a reward/punishment tool, the current online risks facing kids and teens, and simple ideas to develop healthy tech habits at home... so you can finally ditch the guesswork and confusion! Bring your ‘digital dilemmas’ and Dr Kristy will help you find simple solutions and put an end to your techno-guilt!

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.
