Abstract

Digital media has added a layer of complexity to parenting: parents are managing multiple media environments for themselves and their children amidst relentless connectivity. This can result in parents worrying about how they and their children use digital media, and how their family interactions may be affected. Kerri Bleeker, a recent graduate of the MSc in Social and Cultural Psychology at LSE, talks about her research findings highlighting that digital behaviour is the new generation-gap challenging parents and that parents can feel disenfranchised when they rely on digital media as a de facto co-parent.
