Learn if it’s okay to use screen-time as a digital reward or punishment tool.

(6:25 mins) Many parents dangle the ‘digital carrot’ to entice kids to behave or motivate their behaviour, or ban the gaming console, or the TV as a form of punishment. Dr Kristy explain whether we should use screens as a reward and/or punishment tool, without making you feel guilty if this is what you’re currently doing. You’ll understand why using screen-time to reward behaviour is only effective in the short-term and how it alters your relationship with your child. This video will also help you to appreciate why punishing kids with screens can have detrimental consequences.
