This brunch gave us the confidence and tools to manage our smalls the best way possible. Dr Kristy Goodwin, Dr Fiona Martin of Sydney Child Psychology Centre and Dr Anita Collins of The Lullaby Effect blew our minds!

We all went home singing through tantrums with no physical contact with tablets or phones, turned off the wifi and diffused tantrums like ninjas!


Dr Kristy Goodwin

Love it or loathe it, technology is here to stay – and with it comes the all too familiar modern parenting question, ‘How much is too much when it comes to screen time?’ Dr Kristy Goodwin is a mum of two and knows all too well the techno tantrums that come with trying to wrangle devices off children! Far from laying down the law, Dr Kristy will give you her best tips for ditching the techno-guilt so you can raise happy, healthy kids who thrive both online and off.
