"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.
