“How parents of young children manage digital devices at home: the role of income, education and parental style” | EU Kids Online

O relatório do EU Kids Online, intitulado “How parents of young children manage digital devices at home: the role of income, education and parental style”, com autoria de Livingstone, Mascheroni, Dreier, Chaudron e Lagae, reporta-se a 70 famílias e mostrou que os pais tendem a pensar em formas mediar o uso dos media digitais quando os filhos são ainda crianças de tenra idade. 

Conclusões: “In reviewing the parental mediation strategies in 70 European families varying by income, education, culture and circumstances, it has emerged that parents begin thinking about, and finding ways to manage, the digital media use of their children when they are very young. From the original report of findings (Chaudron et al., 2015), we learned that guiding parents’ actions and approach are their already established styles of parenting and family values, and parents extend these to digital media-related activities at home as soon as children begin these activities. Parents are already partly mediating the activities of their older children, and they adjust their approach to include their younger children. To be fair, they are led to intervene when they see their young children respond to digital devices in ways that worry them (spending too long on one activity, staring at the screen, behaving badly when the device is taken away, etc.). They are also highly conscious – via mass media and peer discussion – that being a ‘good parent’ means managing their children’s internet use.”
