Raising Your Child in a Digital World

The starting date for this event has passed. Some events are ongoing, check the dates and information below to see if you can still attend.
Dr Kristy Goodwin translates the latest research about how technology is shaping childhood into essential information and realistic advice for confused and concerned parents. She 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 and digital wellbeing (including why kids have become obsessed with Fortnite, the risks of premature introduction to social media, the current cyber-safety risks for primary students, how to prevent and deal with cyber-bullying, screen ‘addiction’ and exposure to pornography) as well as the health and learning implications of young kids (9-12 year olds) growing up in a world of screens. Kristy will share her simple
formula to calculate healthy screen-time limits and will arm parents with a host of strategies and ideas to prevent techno-tantrums and to help kids develop healthy technology habits. Parents and carers will learn how to get the most out of their child’s screen-time so
they can finally ditch the guilt and guesswork.
Cost: $35 + ticket admin fees
