CHILD development and technology expert Kristy Goodwin will talk at Tranby College in Baldivis about raising children in a digital world.

Dr Goodwin helps parents to cut down the techno tantrums through helping to balance screen and green time.

“As parents, we are sold so many myths that screen time is bad, and too much technology will harm our child’s development, when nothing could be further from the truth,” she said.

“I am here to give parents the facts, not fears when it comes to screen time.

“I try and take the guesswork and guilt out of screen time.”

Dr Goodwin said the digital era is here to stay, so the best approach for parents was to gather the facts and parent accordingly.

“It’s also important that screen time is used in the right way, so their vision and hearing are not impacted,” Dr Goodwin said.
