Digital media have become deeply integrated into family life, extending old ways of connecting and introducing new ones. Contrary to what panicky headlines might have us believe, rather than displacing established ways of interacting, playing and communicating – digital media sit alongside them. Today, British families eat, shop and read together – and they watch TV, stream content, play video games, and use educational technology. They stop by to see friends and family and they text, use messaging apps and make video calls. Yet parents have woefully few sources of support and advice when they have digital questions and dilemmas. In this report, released for Safer Internet Day 2018, we present key findings from a nationally representative survey of UK parents of children aged 0-17.
