Dr Marlena Kruger en Johan Rademan tydens die onderhoud vir RSG DrieSestig, Vrydag 20 September 2019. Laai potgooi hier af.


While Dr. Marlena Kruger was overseas to attend the World Education Congress, Mrs. Juliana Freeme, an occupational therapist with a MSc degree in Neurodevelopment, and a Director of the TechnoLife Wise Foundation, delivered a talk on behalf of Dr. Marlena Kruger at the fifth Raising Toddlers seminar on 29 June 2019. It was held at the Radisson Blue hotel in Sandton.

Her talk focused on how the negative impact of the use of technology and screens easily grow into Technology or Screen Addiction. After the important development milestones during toddler years were highlighted, it is crystal clear that all parents need to become much better informed and critical before they use any digital screens as their tech-babysitters for a short-term break, but with long-term negative outcomes.
