Parents or peers: Which Group most affects the experiences of young people online, and how?

Children and teenagers face and embrace a range of risks in online environments. These risks include inappropriate content, potentially-dangerous contact and privacy risks. All are of concern to parents, policy makers and law enforcers and significant international attention has been paid to recommending risk-management strategies. There are few family and household-based studies concerning whether recommendations are followed within the home and how these risks are discussed and negotiated. This project is the first to specifically target Australian families. It will identify the domestic drivers, inhibitors and regulators of children’s risky online behaviours to inform iterative policy development and nationally-specific recommendations.
