"Young People, Internet Use and Wellbeing-Technology in the Home" SWGfL Report

A report by the Internet Safety organisation SWGfL which looks at children and young people’s use of the Internet and technology in the home. The report provides findings from a survey of 9,154 children and young people between Year 2 and Year 13 living in the UK and a survey of parents conducted by Mumsnet.

The report has found that:

  • Young people are likely to turn to their parents for help until they reach their teenage years

  • As young people get older, they believe they know more about digital technology than their parents

  • Young people become more and more confident about bypassing technical house rules as they get older

  • There may be evidence to suggest as children get older they aren’t aware their internet access is being monitored.
