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.
Today’s young children are experiencing ‘digitalised childhoods’ and this has implications on their health, learning and development. In this parent seminar, Dr Kristy dispels the myths and misinformation and arms parents with facts, not fears, about how technology is shaping childhood. She explains how young children’s basic developmental needs are being shaped by growing up in a digital world and the 7 essential components that kids really need to thrive both online and offline.

Children’s brain and technology expert (and mum!) Dr Kristy Goodwin helps parents nd the best ways to use technology to support, not sti e young children’s learning and development. She arms parents with facts, not fears, about what young children (0-12 years) really need to thrive online and o ine in a digital world and how screens are shaping the way that young kids learn and develop.

Dr Kristy marries the latest research from a range of disciplines (including neuroscience, developmental science and technology research) to provide a comprehensive and cutting-edge perspective about the impact of “digitalised childhoods” on young children’s learning, health and wellbeing.

Dr Kristy helps to eradicate parents’ guilt and concern and arm them with essential information (without telling you that you need to ban the iPad, or unplug the TV). She shows you that technology isn’t necessarily toxic or taboo and it won’t damage your child’s development if it’s used the right ways. And that’s exactly what Kristy shares with parents in this seminar: how to use technology in healthy and helpful ways.
