Why does my child throw techno-tantrums?

(8:52 mins)  Kristy explains the neuroscience behind why your child throws techno-tantrums. Unlike regular’ tantrums, techno-tantrums persist way past three years of age. There’s nothing ‘wrong’ with your child and no, it doesn’t mean they’re addicted to technology, or that you should ban the device. In fact, they’re having a ‘typical’ neurobiological response. This video will help confused and concerned parents understand their child’s behaviour and best of all be armed with simple (mum-tested) strategies to prevent them from occurring.
