It’s tough being a parent today, and much of this has to do with technology

Raising Tech-Healthy Humans is a free online seminar designed to help parents navigate the complexities of raising children in a tech-soaked society.

Offered in partnership with Christian Education National, the seminar will equip Christian parents concerned about the impacts of digital technology on their kids’ lives and in need of practical advice.

The content specifically focusses on parents with primary school-aged children and younger, based on Daniel Sih’s book, ‘Raising Tech-Healthy Humans’ (shortlisted for Australian Christian Book of the Year 2023.)

This research-based session will be hosted by the author on Zoom on Wednesday, October 25th, 2023, from 7:45pm – 9:00pm.


Daniel Sih is a productivity expert, TEDx speakermulti award-winning author, and a parent with three children in Hobart. 

His debut book, Spacemaker, won seven international awards, including a 2023 Axiom Business Book Award (USA) and a 2021 Australian Business Book Award. His latest work, Raising Tech-Healthy Humans, was shortlisted for Australian Christian Book of the Year in 2023 and won Best Parenting Book in the 2023 eLit Book Awards (USA).

Daniel has a background in physiotherapy, health management, project management, leading non-profits, and Christian ministry. He has worked as the Director of Spacemakers for a decade and speaks with parents, teachers and leaders across Australia about technology.

What is expected of participants:

This session will be instructive but also interactive, providing an opportunity to talk and share experiences with other parents navigating the challenges and joys of raising tech-healthy humans. 

Participants, including parents, carers, and grandparents, will be encouraged to discuss the content with other parents during a ‘breakout’ room session. The goal is to foster shared conversations with other parents in a secure environment, rather than a passive “listen-in” experience. 

Please note: The advice given in this seminar is general and intended to offer support, encouragement, and mutual accountability among parents. This is an adults-only environment. It does not replace professional or medical advice, and is not specifically designed to assist children struggling with addictions, mental health issues, learning difficulties, or other specific conditions.,
