"My aim is to help parents ditch their techno guilt and empower them to make informed choices bout how they’ll help their young children thrive in a digital world.
I arm parents with evidence-based information about how technology is changing the ways young children learn, develop and play. I’m on a mission to eradicate parents’ fears with facts about technology. I want to show parents how we can leverage it in ways that won’t damage their development. I want to show parents how to raise happy, healthy kids who thrive online
Dr Kristy Goodwin
Northside recognizes the challenges families face to strike the balance between the right sort of exposure to technology and the age of their child. On 2nd March, 2017 the school is hosting a powerful 90-120 minute workshop which also comes with a Q&A session and copies of an audio recording of the workshop for each participant.
Dr Kristy is well known as one of Australia’s leading authorities when it comes to parenting kids in the digital age. She’s an exciting and dynamic parenting speaker who captivates her audience with her humourous anecdotes, catchy phrases (like techno guilt and appcidents), energy and genuine passion for sharing research-based information with parents and educators.
As a researcher and speaker (and mum!), Dr Kristy’s on a mission to help eradicate parents’ techno guilt and confusion, by arming them with research-based information and simple strategies that work so screen-time doesn’t end in scream-time.
