    Event description

    Digital Wellbeing is about making the best use of digital technology and about integrating digital technology into family life in ways that are meaningful and promote individual family values. Meaningful Engagement is about striking a healthy balance of digital technology use in family life. Mitigating the risks and embracing the opportunities afforded by digital technology requires that parents cycle between restrictive and enabling mediation strategies depending on the child, context, parenting style, and family values.

    • Do you struggle to keep up with the  technology in your child
    • Do you feel as if there’s a new game, app or social media platform to worry about almost every day? 
    • Do you want to know more about what children & young people do online?

    Then focusing on Digital Wellbeing is for you!

    Children today are immersed in technology, and from their earliest explorations of digital spaces, they are exposed to risks. Parents can easily be led to believe that technology is inherently negative and dangerous, yet this could not be further from the truth. Indeed, Professor Andy Phippen encourages parents to “move beyond online safety to better understand how we develop resilience in young people so they can deal with what they see and do online, rather than hoping they avoid it completely.” Despite the potential risks associated with digital technologies, we are simply no longer in a position to argue that denying our children access to them is in their best interest. Whether we like it or not, we are parenting in the digital present and preparing our children for their digital futures.

    This Digital Wellbeing forum will be an interactive experience with Robyn, other parents and some older students and will focus on topics such as:

    • Online Safety
    • Cyberbullying
    • Social media
    • Monitoring Screen Time
    • Internet Addiction
    • Developing A Family Media Agreement
