The aim of this study was to describe and analyze how parents relate to their children’s internet use.

children’s internet use; 2) What possible pros and cons do the parents see in their children’s

The aim of this study was to describe and analyze how parents relate to their children’s internet use. Studies have shown that children nine years and older have increased access to private tablets and smartphones, leading to unsupervised online opportunities. With increased use, parents must take responsibility to protect their children from risks associated with the internet. We have examined; 1) how parents’ knowledge and experience look regarding their
children’s internet use; 2) What possible pros and cons do the parents see in their children’s
internet use; 3) How parents reason about limits regarding their children’s internet use; 4) How parents’ concern look regarding internet use for girls and for boys. We chose to perform a qualitative study with semi-structured interviews. We interviewed parents of three girls and three boys between the ages of nine and ten. The results of the study revealed that parents were faced with various difficulties while guiding their children’s internet use. We discerned that the parents limited the children’s internet use by regulating their time, and to a lesser degree discussing risks associated with being online. The parents thought that their children were too young to discuss all the dangers with being online. In our study, it became evident that parents were lacking the children’s knowledge regarding the internet and its functions. (Less)
