Part 1 - Raising Screenagers

Dr Kristy will arm parents with research-based yet realistic advice to help parents feel confident about how they can best support their adolescent’s physical health, mental wellbeing and learning online.

Kristy will explore:

// Why young people are susceptible to POTENTIAL PITFALLS ONLINE given their BRAIN DEVELOPMENT;

// Why the online world is APPEALING to adolescents (there's science to explain your teen's digital infatuation);

// A simple (& realistic) formula to determine healthy SCREEN TIME limits for teens of various ages (based on their BASIC NEEDS);

// Why parents need to be the PILOT of the DIGITAL PLANE and set 5 BOUNDARIES to ensure their teen's time online supports their PHYSICAL HEALTH and MENTAL WELLBEING;

// How to support their teen's 'digital DNA' especially when using social media;


All attendees will receive an eBook summary with key information, links and resources, plus a digital wellbeing checklist and a PDF guide to support online learning. 

Part 2: Sleep for Better Health, Resilience and Performance

Over 70% of teenagers experience insufficient sleep. This is having a significant impact on many areas of their lives such as:

// Learning and academic performance: Good quality sleep is essential for both pre and post learning.  Poor sleep decreases motivation, concentration and memory consolidation.

// Mental health and resilience: Poor sleep negatively impacts relationships, overall mood and can be associated with depression, anxiety, negative body image and low self-esteem.

// Behaviour and decision making: Poor sleep impacts decision making capacity, has a negative effect on behaviour and increases risk of accidents.

// Physical Health: Poor sleep affects children’s physical growth, brain development, immune system and plays a key role in weight gain.

Lisa will explore:

// Create awareness of the level of sleep deprivation among students and the effect this is having on all aspects of their lives.

// Empower participants with the knowledge, practical strategies and tools to make informed decisions regarding their sleep health.

// Equip staff with ideas they can implement, along with options for a whole-school approach to creating a “sleep smart school”.

Lisa looks forward to sharing the “Sleep for Better Health, Resilience and Performance” message with you.
