The Digital Life of Kids
February 13, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The good, the bad and the really scary
A masterclass with Maggie Dent and Claire Orange
The influence of technology on our family lives and on our children’s development, behaviour and friendships grows ever larger. While many of us may have grown up in houses with one tv, a VCR/DVD player and a landline with a cord attached to it, now the average household is full of screens. In 2020, just under half of Australian children aged 6 to 13, owned or had access to a mobile phone.
Even if your family lives a completely screen-free ethos at home, as soon as your child goes on a play date or hops on the school bus, they can be exposed to all the things you’ve protected them from by another child with a phone. Things such as porn, sexualised or violent or gory content are just a few clicks away.
In this very special masterclass for parents of toddlers to tweens, Maggie Dent is joined by mental health and child wellbeing specialist Claire Orange. Together, they will explore how we can give our children the tools and skills to be – as Claire says – “safe, civil and savvy online”.
