Today, children are growing up in a wide range of family formations such as foster families, stepfamilies, single-father or single-mother families, where children are often required to navigate multiple households. How do parents manage, coordinate and experience children’s internet practices? How does parental mediation of the internet work in divorced families when parents are separated?
