Product description

Product Description

Parents today are faced with children who tap, swipe and pinch before they can tie their shoelaces or ride a bike. Two-year-olds know the ins and outs of every remote in the house, and new gadgets or apps appear daily promising to make children smarter and faster…

Many parents are worried about the effects all this technology is having on their children’s physical health and development. They feel guilty about the amount of time their children watch TV or play with iPads, but admit that trying to wrestle a digital device out of their child’s hand can frequently result in massive conflict and tantrums!

In Raising Your Child in a Digital World, leading children’s technology researcher and mum, Dr Kristy Goodwin, shows you healthy, safe and practical ways to incorporate technology into your children’s learning and development. She takes the latest evidence-based research findings from all over the world to establish, in simple terms, what is actually okay for children to use and what to avoid and when. Using the seven foundations of early childhood development Dr Kristy explains how parents can develop healthy digital habits in their children and use technology to promote and safeguard their whole wellbeing. This book will allow parents to finally put an end to the guesswork and guilt about raising their children in a digital age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Digital media isn't evil...if parents manage it properly 2 January 2017

We all know that too much digital media consumption isn't good for our children. But how much is too much? And how do we help our children to derive some of the benefits of technology without going overboard? Dr. Goodwin's book helps us to understand the answers to these questions. I was shocked to learn that technology can actually make valuable contributions to each of a child's seven building blocks for healthy development - as long as parents manage it properly. Find my (Jen Lumanlan; Alvin's wife - darned shared Prime accounts!) interview with Dr. Goodwin by searching for the Your Parenting Mojo podcast on iTunes.
