PARENTING CONNECTION WA SOUTH WEST PROUDLY PRESENTS:
Parenting WA South West proudly presents a webinar with Dr Kristy Goodwin.
This webinar will help confused and concerned parents and navigate the digital world with their ‘screenagers’, without suggesting that they ‘digitally amputate’ them. 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;
// Why DIGITAL DISCONNECTION is critical for your teen's PHYSICAL HEALTH and MENTAL WELLBEING.
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. Register and if you can’t attend live, we’ll send you a link to access the replay.
