Podcast: Nikki Bush and Arthur Goldstuck Chat to Jenny Crwys-Williams About Tech-Savvy Parenting

Tech-Savvy ParentingNikki Bush and Arthur Goldstuck spoke to Jenny Crwys-Williams on Talk Radio 702 about their new book, Tech-Savvy Parenting: A Guide to Raising Safe Children in a Digital World.

Crwys-Williams says Tech-Savvy Parenting is an excellent book that enables adults to better understand and keep up the “high-tech normal” that now characterises children’s lives. Bush says because the world has changed so fast there is a need for parents and children, and teachers and learners, to develop a shared understanding of the dangers of technology and media, but also of their unbelievable potential.

Bush says that the purpose of parenting is to equip children with values and an understanding of there context so that they can make good decisions. Goldstuck adds that parents and teachers need to understand the richness of the communication and connection that young people get from new technology. Their world is split between online and physical presence, and parents should equip them to be “healthy switchers”.
