Webinar recording: Understanding techno tantrums

New in 2020

In this digital era, chances are we’ve all experienced our children throwing a techno-tantrum. Techno-tantrums are completely normal and often a result of the neurobiological changes that occur when kids use technology. But this doesn’t mean that we have to simply accept that they’re part of our modern parenting reality. In this webinar Dr Kristy Goodwin helps parents and carers understand why children and teens emotionally combust when they digitally-disconnect, and how to establish new, healthy technology habits.

Key learning and discussion points include:

  • The science behind why kids and teens have techno tantrums and find it challenging to switch off screens
  • How to establish and enforce firm guidelines and boundaries
  • How to be the pilot of the digital plane
  • Researched based, realistic strategies to help develop healthy digital behaviours so that screen time doesn’t always end in ‘scream time’
