Raising your child in a digital world
6pm - 8pm | 16 Oct 2018

Dr Kristy Goodwin, a digital parenting educator, author and researcher (& mum who also deals with her kids techno-tantrums), translates the latest research about how technology is shaping childhood into essential information for confused and concerned parents.

Dr Kristy helps parents make informed decisions about how to best manage screen-time at home (so that it doesn’t always end in ‘scream time’)… and no she won’t suggest that you ban the iPad, or unplug the TV! Parents will understand the latest risks to kids’ online safety (including current cyber-safety threats, pornography exposure, introduction of phones and social media), as well as the health, learning and development implications of young kids (5-12 years) growing up in a world of screens. Kristy will share her simple formula to determine healthy screen-time limits and will arm parents with a host of strategies and ideas to help kids develop healthy technology habits. 

Suitable for parents and professionals of children aged 5 to 12 years.
