Flashpoint Channel 7
"I dare say we've all had mixed experiences and thoughts with social media and our mobile phone habits.
Candise Adams is a clinical counsellor treating more and more kids for addictions, anxiety and bullying. She's also doing great things in the classroom, presenting to high school students on the dangers of social media and the online world.
It was great to sit down with her for #Flashpoint and also speak to a brave family about their challenges in this space. Arden and her twin daughters, Mia and Amy, gave an honest insight about their battle with this juggernaut and what they've learnt during the process.
They are wise beyond their years."

Consent Article-Kids In Perth
"Picture this: You’ve arrived at a family gathering with your children and Aunty Beryl immediately comes in for a big hug and a kiss. You happily embrace her in return, but your kids pull away and hide behind your legs. You don’t want your Aunty to feel offended, so you pressure your children to give her a cuddle which the kids do begrudgingly with uncomfortable expressions on their faces.
While some of you reading this would be thinking “no way, I’d never force my kids to hug someone if they don’t want to”, others would be thinking “yep, that sounds familiar!” It’s a common scenario and of course relatives want to express their love towards the children with a hug and kiss. But experts say forcing our kids to hug relatives when they don’t want to isn’t teaching the right lesson about personal boundaries."
