Dr Kristy Goodwin

Leading digital parenting expert

Dr Kristy Goodwin is a leading digital parenting expert (and mum who also has to deal with her kids’ techno-tantrums!). She’s the author of Raising Your Child in a Digital World, a speaker, researcher and media commentator with a gift for translating research into practical and digestible information for parents, educators and health professionals.


This chapter will outline possible risks to kids’ health, learning and development if screen-time isn’t used in healthy and helpful ways. It will detail practical strategies that parents and educators can implement to mitigate any potential risks associated with technology (because digital abstinence is not a viable solution!).
