Navigate the digital world with your child without baning the gaming console, iPad, or unplugging the TV.

About this event

Dr Kristy Goodwin provides parents/ carers of children aged 0 – 10 years with research-based yet realistic advice to feel confident about how to best support your child’s physical health, mental wellbeing and learning online. The session will explore:

  • Why children find the online world captivating and how to manage screen time so it doesn’t end in ‘scream time’
  • A simple and realistic formula to determine healthy screen time limits for children based on their basic needs
  • Why parents need to be the pilot of the ‘digital plane’ and the 3Bs that allow them to be pilot
  • Why focusing on how much time children spend online is not the most important question and the 5 essential boundaries that ensures a child’s time online supports their physical health and mental wellbeing
  • Why we should avoid using screen time as a reward or punishment tool (even though that may seem crazy!)
  • Realistic strategies to help children transition from screen activities without tears and tantrums
  • Why digital connection is critical for your child.

Dr Kristy Goodwin is one of Australia’s leading digital wellbeing and performance experts (and mum who also deals with her kids’ techno-tantrums!). She’s the author of Raising Your Child in a Digital World, a speaker, media commentator and digital wellbeing researcher who doesn’t suggest we ban the iPhone.
