Abstract

The main focus of this report is on the role of parental education and household income. Together, these factors capture a major source of difference and inequality across households: hence we ask, how do they shape parental mediation of digital media? For policy-makers and practitioners, it is important to learn whether a generic approach to parental advice and awareness-raising is sufficient, or whether tailored guidance would be more effective for the different target groups of parents being addressed.
