Children and Parents: Media Use

Ofcom has today published is annual report on the topic of children and parents' media use and attitudes. As usual it's a very detailed document, but the real headline has been its claim that one third of 5-15 year olds now own a tablet computer. Other topics covered include parents appearing to play a more hands-on role in managing online risks for their children, and a clear preference for using social media in girls over boys.

The full text of the report plus various supporting information is available here. Readers may also be interested in Ofcom's recent report entitled Children's Online Behaviour: Issues of Risk and Trust.
