Tween and teen girls don’t have a problem with screens. Just ask them.
They’ll tell you everything’s fine. But… ask them to put that screen away, get off social media, or stop obsessing over everything online and you’d better prepare for battle!
Of all people who use devices and screens, some researchers have found that adolescent girls are the most at risk of decreased wellbeing, friendship issues, and body image difficulties. Yet others find moderate use of devices can support wellbeing.
But is the problem the screen? Or is it something else?
In this webinar, Dr Justin Coulson (expert and host of Channel 9’s Parental Guidance) and Jocelyn Brewer (psychologist and founder of Digital Nutrition) answer your most vexing questions regarding tween and teen girls and their screens.
We’ll tackle themes including:
- The never-ending, incessant use of screens (and why "turn it off" is not going to cut it)
- What social media is doing to our girl's body image and wellbeing
- Cyberbullying, nudes and screens in bedrooms
- How to set boundaries around screens that work for you AND her.
