What we covered

Join us for an insightful Forest session on "Technology and Parenting: Navigating the Digital World during the Holidays." During this session, we will explore the impact of technology on parenting and provide valuable insights and guidance for creating healthy boundaries and fostering responsible technology use.

Our dedicated mental health professional, Katlego, an intern clinical psychologist with a passion for adolescent and adult psychotherapy, will lead the session. Katlego has experience working with families and individuals to navigate the challenges of the digital age and promote healthy relationships with technology.

Understanding the Impact

The use of technology has become pervasive in our daily lives, and this is especially true for young people. As parents, it's crucial to understand the impact of technology on our children's development, well-being, and relationships.

Setting Healthy Boundaries

One of the key aspects of navigating the digital world as a parent is setting healthy boundaries around technology use. This includes establishing guidelines for screen time, managing access to devices, and creating tech-free spaces and times for family activities.

Fostering Responsible Technology Use

In addition to setting boundaries, it's important to foster responsible technology use in children. This involves educating them about the potential risks of excessive screen time, cyberbullying, and online safety. Encouraging open communication about their online activities and modeling healthy tech habits can support children in developing responsible digital behavior.
