Raising Screenwise Kids

Date

02 March 2024

Time

10am - 12pm

Location

Zoom

With so much of our children’s time now spent online, how can we raise them to be screenwise and future-ready?

It can be a parent’s greatest challenge to set limits on screentime and boundaries around digital content consumption. However, emotions like anger and frustration often get in the way of communicating a parent’s best intentions to nurture responsible and discerning digital users. Yet if done right, our children can be empowered to consume media wisely.

Supported by Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), this webinar is all about creating shifts in our parenting approach through the different ages and stages for our children to have a healthy, balanced relationship with technology that goes beyond mere rules and restrictions.

Parents will gain the skills to:
1.
Establish positive digital habits as a family and enjoy meaningful offline experiences
2.
Set clear and safe boundaries for screen time and online interactions
3.
Navigate tensions and disagreements about screentime
