Parent Event on Raising your child in the digital age

event cover smaller

Our current parents AND future parents are requested to attend our exciting and valuable Term 3 Parent Education Network Event on "Raising your child in a digital world" with Dr Kristy Goodwin - one of Australia’s leading digital wellness and digital parenting educators.



Date: Wednesday 18th September
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Venue: Santa Sophia Catholic College, Hambledon Rd Campus
Who: Current parents AND future parents of Santa Sophia Catholic College.


Dr Kristy Goodwin, a digital parenting educator, author and researcher (& mum who also deals with her kids’ techno-tantrums), translates the latest research about how technology is shaping childhood into essential information for confused and concerned parents.

Dr Kristy 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 (including current cyber-safety threats, pornography exposure, introduction of phones and social media), as well as the health and learning implications for kids 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.

Dr Kristy will explain how technology is impacting kids’ learning, sleep, social, language, play, physical skills and their vision, hearing and posture and will arm parents with practical strategies about how to best raise kids in a digital world. Parents will learn how to get the most out of their child’s screen-time so they can finally ditch the guilt and guesswork.
