Abstract: Since a very early age, gaming and video watching on a variety of internet-connected devices are among children's favourite activities. Parents see digital technologies as positive and unavoidable, if not necessary, but at the same time, find managing their use challenging. They perceive digital technologies as something that needs to be carefully regulated and controlled. They would appreciate advice on fostering children’s online skills and safety. The present analysis builds on data coming from 206 family interviews with both children and parents, carried out from September 2014 until April 2016 in 19 countries. This paper will expose the key findings regarding first children’s usage, perceptions of the digital technologies and their digital skills. It looks then on their parents’ perceptions, attitudes, and strategies in the home context. It will finally reflect on the potential benefits, risks and consequences associated with their (online) interactions with digital technologies.
