Dr Kristy Goodwin is one of Australia’s leading digital wellness and digital parenting educators and the author of Raising Your Child in a Digital World.

Kristy is regularly called upon by the media to translate the latest research about kids, teens and screens into practical
and relevant information for worried parents and professionals. She provides parents and professionals with facts, not fears,
about how screens are impacting on children’s health, learning, wellbeing and development and also on adult health and productivity.

Kristy’s on a mission to empower people to tame their technology habits and not be a slave to the screen!

Here's just some of what we cover in this episode:

  • The part of the brain related to personality and expression and when it's at its most active in teens
  • Digital footprints and what you need to know about digital archives
  • Parent dilemma: gaming, plan or ban? How best to manage the boundaries.
  • The growing shift in the power dynamic and why digital rewards are not recommended
  • Fake social media accounts and vaults. What you need to know
  • How technology encourages us to multi task and why we need to learn how to mono task 
  • Why attention management is the most important skill we can cultivate in our children today.
  • Plus so much more
