A Conversation@theRRC with Dr Bex Lewis
Published in February, Bex Lewis’ book, Raising Children in a Digital Age, has received massive positive media coverage.
“A refreshingly direct and thoughtful guide for parents who want to understand their kids’ digital world but don’t want to be patronised. Up to date and evidence-based, this book walks a finely-judged line between inviting parents to get involved and trusting kids to be sensible, by suggesting constructive ways for parents to talk to and also learn from their children.” Sonia Livingstone, author of “Children and the Internet”, LSE.
Based in the North East, Bex is an enthusiastic user of digital media. Come along and join her to discuss how how all of us can engage in a respectful, and positive, way with today’s technology.
‘In the same way as you’re beside your child when they learn to crawl, walk and ride a bike, right up to when they learn to drive, you have to teach them to respect the digital environment, look for the opportunities and be aware of the potential dangers. Talk to them about what they are seeing and experiencing, give them freedom within boundaries as you would in any other space.’ Dr Bex Lewis
