Teens On Tech
Navigating the digital world together with your adolescent
An online masterclass for parents with Maggie Dent and Dr Kristy Goodwin
If you have adolescents in your home, then it’s very likely that technology is at the forefront of your mind. The digital world in its ever-changing forms is having a huge impact on how our teens interact with us, their school, their learning, their friends and the world around them. And there are genuine concerns around the impact of screens on our teens’ physical and emotional wellbeing, and their capacity to focus and learn deeply.
But all is not lost as the doomsayers may tell us. Technology has huge benefits and pitfalls and, like everything, it’s about keeping it in balance.
In this online masterclass, parenting author and educator Maggie Dent teams up with digital wellbeing author and researcher Dr Kristy Goodwin to help parents with putting some healthy boundaries in place in their households.
Maggie and Kristy explore:
» Understanding the unique changes in adolescence.
» What forms of technology are they using the most?
» What healthy tech usage looks like (for our teens and us!)
» How screens are sabotaging teens' sleep and mental health.
» Distraction… it’s a thing!
» How to empower your adolescent to take care online.
» How to create an agreement to keep things in balance.
» Why banning tech and using it as a punishment tool aren't solutions.
» How to support your teen if they get into trouble online.
» Cyberbullying – how to support them to identify it, minimise its impact and deal with it.
» Red flags – when should you worry about your teen’s tech use?
» Collective parenting... how we can support each other's kids online.
...and their top tips to support parents today.
This practical online masterclass will help you work alongside the adolescents in your life to navigate the ever-changing digital landscape, without compromising your relationship.
Watch this on your device whenever suits you.
